Velvet Margarita will serve $5 premium margaritas "every day until the recession ends." Another wallet-friendly feature: complimentary tortilla chips accompanied by warm beans and three types of salsa. The festive restaurant serves Mexican fare (created from the owner's family recipes) such as Ahi tuna ceviche, chicken mole, empanadas, and smoked salmon quesadilla. The outdoor patio, with a DJ and small dance floor, is decorated with painted murals.
