The specialty at this Mexican stunner is antojitos, literally translated as "little dishes from the streets." But the high ceilings, gracious service, and gorgeous Frida Kahlo–inspired interior are anything but street, and even the smallest of dishes is bigger than life when doused with chocolatey mole poblano sauce or piquant lime-cilantro dressing. Standouts include house-made margaritas topped with a clever salt foam, the Veracruz cod in a hearty olive-tomato confit, and grasshopper tacos—yes, those are bugs basted in tequila and chile sauce... and they're delightful. Museumgoers shouldn't miss the filling and fanciful lunch specials.

Take a gang of friends and share many of the small plates. Chips and salsa are great to start! You really must order the made at the table guacamole. Grasshopper tacos! Cactus dishes. Pork and beef tacos were amazing. My mouth is watering just remembering. Decor is unique! Service was spectacular!

What a great place, would definitely visit it again. The food was so flavorful and the service was great. We had the guacamole, can't go without. We also did several Antojites and shared them between the 3 of us. Really awesome! Our son had the Watermelon water and the guava water...incredible! The prices are good for the individual dish, but it added up quick with everything we had.
