Tequila With a Side of Texas


When Mayahuel opened back in April, it elevated tequila from the vomitatious realms of frat boy revelry to decidedly more rarefied, even artisanal climes. Now, Hill Country‘s showing the agave plant even more love with a tequila and barbecue pairing next Wednesday, July 22. The three-course dinner will partner dishes like smoked Texas tenderloin and smoked chili-rubbed lamb chops with Don Julio tequila, and will be prefaced by a “Craft of Tequila” reception attended by none other than Jimmy Bertram, the mayor of Lockhart, Texas. The dinner is $65 per person, and reservations can be made by calling the restaurant.
