With handmade maiz azul stone-ground tortillas made daily in house, sustainable meats and seafood, slow-cooked guisados, and scratch salsas, Puesto’s menu is a celebration of fundamental Mexican flavors and an homage to the cosmopolitan palate of Mexico City, courtesy of Executive Chef/Partner Luisteen Gonzalez and Executive Creative Chef Katy Smith.

Went with three other friends for lunch and everyone liked the food and ambiance and would come back again. My two favorite tacos are the Zucchini and Cactus (so tasty) and the Tamarindo Shrimp (sweet and spicy - very flavorful). My only complaint was the service could have been a little better. The waiter was nowhere to be found at times even though the restaurant was not that crowded. All in all, a good dining experience and I look forward to a return visit.

This is our new favorite place... The food, cocktails and service here was excellent! Homemade tortillas, chips and blue crab guacamole and amazingly delicious tacos! Each taco is a meal in itself; my favorite was the filet mignon taco! My mouth is watering just thinking about it...

I loved the canolis on Valentine's day. They must add them to tha regular menu and not just for special celebrations, they are a little expensive in my opinion but they worth it.
