Casco Antiguo is great. It’s easy to get a reservation at this Mexican spot, and there’s always a great crowd inside drinking on-tap margaritas and generally making the place feel birthday-appropriate. Plus, the food is seriously delicious - starters like guacamole and homemade fire-roasted salsa are great, but the perfect beer-battered halibut tacos and red enchiladas made with braised pork are good-time guarantees. Unless you’re vegetarian. In which case, get the plantain/black bean empanada.

There’s a lot of good Mexican in Seattle, but Mezcaleria Oaxaca in Capitol Hill also has an excellent rooftop.
Copal is a Mexican spot in Pioneer Square that put a lot of effort into making a great space. The food needs a bit more of that effort.
