The 200-plus list of rare and hard-to-find tequilas is the main draw at Moquila, where the young and the restless come to drink pitchers of margaritas and make their pitches. Those margaritas are fine, but order them straight up (the ones served on the rocks go watery fast) - you can also order your tequila neat, as a "flight" or by the bottle. And the guacamole, made tableside, is no slouch either. Generally the Mexican specialties at this upscale eatery are quite good: Chicken tortilla soup is rich enough to make a meal, but save room for tostadas of spit-roasted duck, shrimp ceviche, pork tenderloin with salsa verde, and molcajete de carne. The only weak note here appears with the tacos - after several years in business, the homemade tortillas are still too thick and bland. Save your taco cravings for a roadside cart.
