The first images of Escondite, the new cerveceria de barrio from Biiru, have been disseminated in advance of the Mexican fusion restaurant's official reveal on Tuesday, April 28. Like sister izakaya Biiru, the design aesthetic at Escondite leans on kitschy cultural touchstones — think luchador chic. The menu falls in line accordingly with high-low mashups like truffled quesadillas. A nod to Montreal smoked meat involves tacos, and, natch, there are cocktails. Look for a terrasse this summer too.
Status: Escondite, 1206 Union. Tuesday, Wednesday, 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Thursday to Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. Certified open.
