Restaurant Review: Temazcal Tequila Cantina

Temazcal is a trendy tequila restaurant located at Liberty Wharf in the Seaport District of Boston. The transformation of this block still surprises me when I visit Liberty Wharf, which also houses Legal Harborside (Legal Seafood’s largest restaurant), Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar and Grille, and Del Frisco’s Steak House.

Temazcal is a visually appealing destination. The large bar, dining room and patio make the most of the waterfront views available from Liberty Wharf.  When seated, patrons are provided iPads to review menu items which include delicious looking photographs (all the more to tempt you with I suppose).  You can view their menu online here.  Main plates range from $17-$32; the tacos, tamales and quesadillas (which are also quite filling) range from $14-$16.   While I’ve admitted in past reviews that I’m no authority on Mexican cuisine, I do feel like I am an authority on Fish Tacos which is a personal favorite dish, and Temazcal’s take on this staple plate did not disappoint.  Their fish taco is a beer battered mahi-mahi in a soft corn tortilla and dressed with pickled cabbage, watercress chipotle aioli, Julienned pickled jalapinos and thinly sliced radishes. A meal which includes a shared appetizer, two main plates and a shared dessert (no drinks or tip included) would range from $60 – $75. However, if you opt to eat the complementary chips and order tacos and quesidillas in lieu of ordering a separate appetizer or ordering from the full entrees the price drops to ~$40+; more than reasonable in my opinion.  I’ve heard mixed things about this restaurant, and I was not crazy about the Red Snapper which I was able to try, or several of the other main dinner plates, but overall I like space and neither our food or service disappointed.

Temacazal Tequila Cantina is located at Liberty Wharf 250 Northern Ave.  Dinner reservations are strongly recommended – Tel: (617)439-3502
