Unless you happen to have been born in Puebla—where Cinco de Mayo commemorates their unlikely victory during a battle with the French in 1862—you probably view this coming Monday as Margarita Day. Or maybe Cerveza Day, owing to the lime issue. Either way, tacos and tequila will invariably factor into your evening plans.
But there’s no need to appropriate other people’s cultural celebrations in order to appreciate their food and drink. That’s why we’re happy to patronize these fantastic Mexican restaurants the whole year through; be it the fifth of May or merely as a pick-me-up during the dim doldrums of February.
