Brick Hotel’s principal cafe, Cerrajeria, is named after the locksmith store that occupied component of the hotel’s original setting up — but the structure’s earlier record as a brothel catering to impressive politicians is a a lot more interesting portion of the building’s backstory. Cerrajeria delivers both indoor and out of doors seating, as properly as non-public eating rooms embellished with special initial artwork. 

Less than the steering of Chef Armando Acosta, the hotel’s cafe serves sophisticated variants on global specialties I cherished the margarita de huitlacoche (built with a corn fungus generally utilized in Mexican cooking) and savored the very best beef tongue I’ve ever had, complemented perfectly with caramelized onions. Even the fried rooster — a nod to the chef’s time functioning in Atlanta — was tasty enough to contend with my Kentucky grandmother’s own recipe.
