Sean Brock has also parted ways with Minero, but you can still feast on expertly crafted Mexican street food on East Bay with executive chef Alex Yellan at the helm. Even with exposed brick walls, wood-slatted banquettes, and servers in T-shirts and khakis, they’re still serious about the food. Servers douse charcoal-grilled chicken wings with Valentina hot sauce and shake them tableside in brown paper bags. The menu’s cultural mash-ups include delectable Yucatan pork meatballs served with chilmole, Cotija cheese, pickled raisins (yes, it works) and red rice. And the Minero Burger — two chorizo smash patties, white American cheese, and special sauce on a brioche bun — which used to be a Wednesday only speical, is now a permanent menu fixture. The appealing bar selection includes 16-oz. cans of Tecate, dozens of artisan mescals, and an array of cocktails named for lucha libre wrestlers. —Robert F. Moss (Dish, Winter 2020)
