The Short Or­der

Pasatiempo - - MOVING IMAGES -

Sazón’s ren­o­vated quar­ters on Shelby Street have a hal­lowed feel, and the food and ser­vice add to the feel­ing that you are in a very spe­cial place. The restau­rant bills it­self as New World cui­sine, and though it clearly takes the ma­jor­ity of its di­rec­tion from Mex­i­can fla­vors, it is easy to taste Asian and Mid­dle East­ern in­flu­ences as well. Moles and mez­cal are the hall­marks of chef Fer­nando Olea’s game, and like most of the of­fer­ings at Sazón, they are com­plex and heady. Rec­om­mended: mez­cal flights, Sa­zon­rita cock­tail, sopa de amor, pork belly ta­cos, lamb spe­cial, shrimp en­chi­ladas, and beef ten­der­loin.
