Season & Taste has opened a new restaurant in Stokes Croft, Bristol, on the site formally occupied by MEATliquor, which was forced to close in 2017 following a series of “unspecified incidents”.

The fifth opening from the Bristol-based hospitality group, Masa + Mezcal promotes itself as bringing a high quality, fresh and modern Mexican experience to the city.

The kitchen team will be headed up by Season + Taste director of food Imogen Waite, executive head chef Mark Chapman and head chef Carlos Rivas, and will be serving an entirely gluten-free menu.

As well as a meat-based menu serving a selection of snacks including pig’s ears with habanero aioli and skillet-smoked beef chilli mole, a plant-based menu is also available with options including a cauliflower ceviche with red onion, serrano chilli and tomato, and a fire-grilled sweet potato tostada with ancho chilli and puffed quinoa.

Drinks will focus on mezcal, served straight in tasting flights or in cocktails, and there will also be a house craft beer made in partnership with Bristol brewer Good Chemistry Brewing.

Bristol’s restaurant scene has undergone a turbulent time recently, with several closures including national brand Polpo​, as well as the home-grown Birch​ ​and the Wallfish and Wellbourne Bistro​.
