Attempting to recreate Distrito's Spiced Nuts - suggestions?

I'm attempting to recreate the spiced nuts that Distrito serves as a type of appetizer when you first sit down. All I can distinctly recall is the lime zest. Does anyone know what other spices may be on them?

      Union Square restaurant cookbook has a dynamite recipe for spiced nuts, called Bar Nuts.

        I found the Union Square Bar Nuts recipe and gave it a shot. I used the recipe and just added lime zest and they turned out delicious! Thanks!
