“Tacos may not be considered a serious meal by most, but here at solita, we take them very seriously.” With Solita, Partners Matt Baumayr, Rich Howland, and Executive Chef Deborah Schneider, the restaurateurs behind the SOL Cocina brand, have created yet another unique interpretation of contemporary Mexican food, with its own personality, look and distinctive menu. Similar to SOL, Solita builds on an appreciation for fresh ingredients, big flavors, and seasonally changing menus. At the heart of the restaurant and the menu is a wood-fired open grill and oak smoker. They offer Mexican favorites such as tacos, carne asada, skirt steak asada, ancho chile chicken, oak–roasted chipotle chicken, house carnitas, red chile borracho beef and wood-grilled wild fish, all served with delicious hand-made salsas.
The bar menu at Solita takes an equally fresh approach to traditional Mexican cocktails, featuring fresh fruit-based and agave-sweetened margaritas made with 100% blue agave tequilas. Margaritas focus on vibrant and bold flavors, and all recipes are made in-house with fresh citrus juices and sugar, and contain no HFCS, preservatives or coloring.
Solita guests will have the opportunity to partake in five new Super Taco selections, including Chef Deb’s acclaimed vampiro- double tortilla with cheese, serranos & green onions, guacamole, choice of carne asada or grilled chicken, chipotle sauce, cotija cheese and salsa fresca. Save room for the demonic brownie – rich chocolate brownie topped with salted caramel pecan sauce, ice cream and strawberry rum salsa.
Luxe Tip: The airy 150-seat space offers 80 seats indoors and 70 seats in a covered, all-weather patio. Great for large parties and celebrations.
