Taco Bell be damned! Everything about this atmospheric downtown restaurant screams "unique Mexican flavor," thanks to the supreme talents of its owner and chef, Suzana Dávila. The colorful dining room and impeccable presentation are cause enough for excitement--but wait until you taste the food! Servers, dressed in minimalist attire, bring a chalkboard to your table with the day's dishes (they change daily) written in Spanish. Choose a single dish, or be adventurous and let Dávila combine three mystery items for you. There are no corners cut with your food, and you can taste it. From the enormous, artistically prepared side salads to the warm corn tortillas that accompany every meal, your taste buds will sing the praises of this stylish eatery.
