Chef–owner Richard Sandoval brought his popular concept of modern, upscale Mexican cuisine from New York to Denver, and it's just as welcome here. The food is classic Mexican with a twist, such as seafood tacos, huitlacoche (edible fungus) dumpling soup, elaborate moles, and empanadas for dessert. The tequila flights are a favorite at the large, inviting bar, which is highlighted by a mural made of semiprecious stones made by artist and restaurant namesake Rufino
Tamayo. Screens made from blond wood and Spanish art fill the interior, and in season the outdoor patio supplies a rare view of the mountains.
