El Carnicero

Hours: Tuesday-Sunday Dinner: 4 p.m. - Close Friday-Sunday Lunch: 11 a.m. - Close Closed Mondays + Holidays

Eric Williams' new Lakewood cantina is not Momocho West, but it does share some DNA with that insanely popular Ohio City restaurant. Carnicero translates to "butcher," and the name is a pretty good indicator of what's to come. Slow-cooked meats like beef brisket, lamb, wild boar, duck and pork belly are transformed into savory toppings for tamales or fillings for roll-your-own tacos. The chips, salsa and guac here are just as good as that other spot, and so are the margaritas.
