SoNo (South Norwalk) is already home to a vibrant dining scene, and the addition of Evarito’s Mexican Kitchen and Bar has made the neighborhood a true dining destination. The restaurant which opened last year is the latest offering from the Skal Restaurant Group whose other popular restaurants include Cask Republic (Stamford, New Haven) and the Ginger Man (Greenwich).
Evarito’s menu is Mexican but has been described as “Mexican mash up”. It has been expertly crafted to blend authentic Mexican dishes with modern culinary trends. Christian Burns, principal of the Skal Restaurant Group has culled dishes from his travels to Mexico and brought these items to Evarito’s which can be paired with a fine selection of craft cocktails, beer, wine or sangria.
Like other restaurants in the Skal Group the interior is upscale with fine attention to design, lighting and creating an overall pleasant dining environment. No orange or yellow painted walls or sombreros hanging from the walls at Evarito’s. The feel is casually elegant. We are anxious to visit the roof top bar when it opens in the Spring of 2019.
Our menu on our latest visit included some fantastic apps, craft cocktails and a main dish that will have you returning for more.
Our appetizers included Oyster Shooters with a fresh shucked oyster topped with hicama and served perched on a spicy tomato shot.
Fresh Catch Cerviche was a favorite with fresh seafood, tomato, cilantro, onion, cucumber, avocado.
Queso Fundido is a fun dish for the cheese lover and is a combo of melted Oaxacan, Muenster & Chihuahua cheeses, poblanos, salsa, and soft tortillas. The Chorizo and Cheese empanadas are a pleaser with deep fried masa pockets, Mexican cheese blend served with a spicy cilantro crema. Tasty and different.
Campechana Cocktail was one of our favorites and if you love seafood, you will want to order this delicious dish and features shrimp, octopus, oysters, Mexican cocktail sauce, avocado, and pico de gallo.
Every Mexican restaurant has salsa. Why not take a Salsa Tour, and sample 7 different flavors including chilie de arbol, salsa roja, morita, salsa verde, avocado, borracha, and mole negra.
For our main we suggest the Fajitas which are unlike the typical fare is served on a skillet and your choice of steak, shrimp or mushrooms with grilled mixed vegetables, cilantro cream, and salsa roja. The hand rolled tortillas are authentic and served in a decorative hand carved wooden box.
Evarito’s Mexican Kitchen and Bar has elevated Mexican cuisine to a new level, with an authentic healthy cuisine and fresh ingredients. Absent are the heavy sauces, refried beans and typical fare. In its place are great authentic dishes presented with a modern dining approach.
With the addition of the new rooftop space, Evarito’s needs to be on your dining destination list.
