Fuego Cocina y Tequileria, Arlington, Va.

One of the newest taqueria/tequilerias in the Washington, D.C. area, Fuego Cocina knocks it out of the park with its unusual tequila lineup. Along with the regular old tequilas you might expect to see on the list (Jose Cuervo, Patrón, Avión), there are plenty of gems hidden on the list. Asombroso? El Tesoro? Del Maguey Pechuga mezcal? There’s no stone (or tequila bottle) left unturned. Come for the tequila, but stay for the interesting cocktail menu (with options like the Gherkin Fresca with Sauza Blue Silver, Hendricks Gin, jalapeño simple syrup, and cucumber-lime agua fresca) and handmade tacos with hand-patted tortillas.
