Suerte is an upscale Mexican restaurant on East Sixth that specializes in housemade masa. Their menu is full of shareable dishes that utilize it, like a beet tostada with smashed avocado and a whole grilled fish served with onion escabeche and a stack of blue corn tortillas. Besides the food, they make great mezcal and tequila cocktails, and have a small patio that’s the perfect place to sit and think about how many fresh tortillas you’re about to eat.
