Tortaria bridges the gap between the taco and sandwich trends. The 65-seat restaurant, co-owned by Howard Berke of Caliente Cab Co., doubles as a bodega selling Mexican pantry staples; there's also a full bar specializing in fresh-squeezed-fruit margaritas and Mexican beers. Torta sandwiches in varieties like pulled pork or short ribs are a highlight on the menu, while taquitos on house-made corn tortillas are another option, along with apps, soups, and salads.
