Perched right on Centre Street (Jamaica Plain's main drag), Casa Verde is a homey destination for authentic Mexican fare and lively dining brought to you by the folks behind other neighborhood favorites, Tres Gatos and Centre Street Cafe.
The menu is packed with Mexican favorites, from tacos to tortas, featuring local ingredients and homemade tortillas. Vegetarians won’t be disappointed here, with plenty of meatless options to choose from. The menu ranges from a selection of Chips & Salsa to Snacks to full-on Platos, so whether you’re grabbing beers and watching the game or taking your date for a night on the town, there are enough options to suit any evening.
The bar program is cocktail-heavy, with a number of tequila and mezcal offerings to pair appropriately with your tacos. The beer list is diverse, with options ranging macro and Mexican lagers to funky crafty selections from all over, and the wine list, though spare, has something to fit every category.
The atmosphere, like the food, is comfortable and informal, with exposed brick, whitewashed walls, and colorful plates adorning wooden tabletops. Things get lively when this neighborhood favorite fills up, and the white oak bar is a perfect place to share a meal or grab cocktails with the crew.
Casa Verde is open every weekday for lunch and dinner, weekends for brunch and dinner, and they serve a late-night menu every night.
