Be prepared for French Quarter prices at this Frenchmen Street/Esplanade Avenue spot that opened late last year in the former Rare Form space-but know that the individually priced tacos are bigger than normal and very, very good. Ecuadorian chef Octavio Ycaza, who ran the pop-up Miti, nails them all, but a good place to start is with the carne asada, shrimp, or the Cochinita Pibil. You can try them for half-price from 4 to 7 p.m. on weekdays. For a solid post-work wind-down, add one of their light, refreshing, and strong house margaritas while sitting on their spacious patio.
