  • Oyamel hosts "Hora Feliz" at its Butterfly Bar from 4:30pm to 6:30pm, Sunday through Friday. Guests at the bar can whet their appetites with $4 classic margaritas, ponche or selected draft beers or choose from Oyamel's full menu of wines at half price by the glass. Food-wise, Hora Feliz means two for $4 taco specials.
  • Ask for a seat at the ceviche bar to watch tourists head to the museums in the afternoons and theatre-goers hustle home at night, as well as a great view of the ceviche-making process.
  • Chef José Andrés was named GQ's Chef of the Year in 2009.
  • Oyamel's signature margarita is one of the best in D.C. and is also touted as chef José Andrés' personal favorite. The cocktail mixes Jose Cuervo with Patron Citronge and fresh lime juice and is topped off with a froth of "salt air"--foam made of fresh lime juice, water, kosher salt and a thickener called soy lecithin.
  • The name "Oyamel"--and the delicate copper butterflies that populate the restaurant's interior--are inspired by a rare type of fir tree in central Mexico. Monarch butterflies migrate from the eastern U.S. and Canada to spend winter in oyamel trees (abies religiosa). Take a close look at your tortillas; the restaurant serves them in baskets woven from the needles of the oyamel fir tree.
