This week in Dish, we tell you about local restaurants serving the best single spirits. And when it comes to tequila, Barrio on Nicollet Mall (with locations in Lowertown and Edina) is No. 1 with a bullet. Besides Barrio's great food, the restaurant boasts well over 100 tequilas behind the bar, from its own Barrio blend to lots of good, mid-range reposados to big-time extra anejos, plus three mescals (a tequila-like spirit made from the maguey plant). These tequilas are smooth and lovely straight, but Barrio also serves them in high-class margaritas, mixed drinks, or in its “compadres” -- tequila mixed with a sip of blood orange soda, fresh grapefruit, or ginger apple juice.
