My friend Marissa turned me on to this NY Times article on my favorite summer drink, the michelada. Both she and I seem to love the versions they make at ¡Lotería!, a local authentic upscale Mexican eatery, with locations in Hollywood and at Farmer's Market (and yes, you must use those explanation points when you refer to it).
And, as usual, even though it's written up in the venerable Grey Lady, you've got to hand it to La-La Land for pioneering the trend ... most NY restaurants don't seem to have heard of this tasty concoction, as the author himself points out.
Score another one for the Left Coast. What's the talley now? Eleven-eleven million to oh, six? Manhattanites, feel free to respond. But not before you hoist a michelada or two.
