With 300+ selecciones, it'll have one of the country's most comprehensive tequila/mezcal lists — all of which'll be showcased in a twined-off above-bar catwalk and served with sangrita and a spicy house-made pickleback — plus there'll be tequila 'tails like a Sunrise w/ housemade grenadine, and the creme de cassis/lime/ginger ale El Diablo ...
Mosto is the tequila bar next door to Tacolicious' newest location in the Mission. It's a great place to grab a drink while you wait for a table.
"There is the option of closing off the skylit back room for private events, or just for gathering big groups for birthdays. They take reservations for groups of twelve or more."
"Ask about the chef's tequila tasting selections that evening."
Signature drink: Tequila, of course. Factor in other agave spirits like mezcal and sotol and there are more than 300 selections to choose from. Prices start at $8, and the Tequila comes with two chasers - Sangrita and an escabeche pickle back.
Also on tap: About a half dozen cocktails, including the namesake El Mosto margarita ($9, El Jimador reposado, agave nectar, lime juice), and the popular Paloma ($9, El Jimador blanco, St. Germain, grapefruit juice, Jarritos Toronja).
There will be sake-style tequila service in five-ounce carafes, so that a group can taste a variety of tequilas at their table, side-by-side, without having to go back to the bar. Also, on the Mosto side, there will be a small selection of botanas (drinking snacks), including a tamale, and a $1.50, Mexico City-style al pastor taco, carved from a spit up at the front of the bar. And expect those canning jars covering the ceiling to fill up with little trinkets over time — staff members and investors have been asked to contribute something meaningful to them for a ceiling collage of sorts.
