A few steps away from the revitalized State Street in New Haven, packed with retail and restaurants, Mezcal is a gem on the corner of Mechanic street and State. Bright Spanish décor, small place in a café setting, Mezcal turned out to be a great...More

Amazing food and very cozy environment. Great service. Traditional Mexican cuisine with fresh ingredients. The pitchers of margaritas and sangria were delicious as well.

The chicken chimichanga was delicious! The homemade tortilla chips were a great starter - the salsa was good but spicy! Rice and beans were delicious as well. Margaritas was great too!

The restaurant is not located in a central place and was totally empty (at about 14:00). We had the impression that the place is family managed and the service was warm and friendly. The food was authentic Mexican and very good, we've enjoyed it.

I had the steak chimichanga and it was delicious! The only issue was the wait time. There was only one person waiting on the entire restaurant. He was moving as quickly as he could, but it was a bit much to handle a busy lunch...More
