Pepita is the brainchild of Chef Mike Isabella and Taha Ismail, partner and beverage director for Mike Isabella Concepts. True to its name, this Mexican cantina features a small menu of casual Mexican favorites along side a robust 35-drink cocktail program of classic Mexican and contemporary American cocktails with an extensive list of tequila, mezcal, and fruit juices that are squeezed in-house daily.
