I was sad to see my favorite Vietnamese restaurant close down but I am a fan of Pulqueria. Pulqueria has the same owners as the speakeasy Apotheke which is just next door.
The restaurant/bar opens around 6/ 6:30ish. You need reservations for this place, but the second choice is the bar area which is just as swankified!
All of the cocktails that I've had here were delicious! I especially loved their margaritas and red snapper tacos.
If you can't quite find the place, look for a lot of dressed up people in the middle of a block coming out of a walk up.
