Fodor's Review

With a 5,000-square-foot patio and stunning and vibrant floor-to-ceiling murals by artist Oscar Flores, El Catrin is the hottest place to be in the Distillery District. And the food matches the setting. Delight in the traditional tacos al pastor with shaved pork and pineapple salsa or a foie gras tostado which pays hommage to chef Olivier Le Calvez's French roots. Tequila lovers have a long list of options to choose from—served straight up or in a refreshing margarita. Finish the evening on a sugar high with churros rolled in sugar served with a trio of chocolate, strawberry, and dulce de leche dipping sauces.
