This Alex Stupak (Alinea, WD50) Mexican spot focuses not on tacos, but on ambitious dishes such as squid with chipotle mayonnaise; sweetbread milanesa; and black bean vermicelli. Speaking of mezcal, the staff says Cocina also has the city's biggest selection of tequila and mezcal. We can't verify that, but one look at the bar does prove they have a lot of agave spirits on hand.
