”Ocho measures only 730 square feet, but it’s not short on personality. “It’s lively, loud, friendly, unpretentious, cheap, yet exquisite, surprising, ambitious, innovative, dependable, neighborhood oriented, worldly, local, imported, and, hopefully, interesting,” declares owner Zach Harjo.

Cocktails are equally ambitious: the Donkey Tongue blends chile-infused tequila with lemon and cucumber juice.”
