MexiQ comes from Astoria restaurateurs Dimitri Paloumbis (Break Bar and Billiards) and Dino Philippou (Cavo), who hired consulting chef Julieta Ballesteros (Crema, MXco, Los Feliz) to put a truly southern spin on southern favorites like brisket (braised in tequila and oregano, and smoked in-house), ribs (rubbed in adobo, marinated in beer, and braised in banana leaves), and even fried chicken (crusted in cornmeal and dusted in ancho chile). To top it all off: 48 beer taps!
