Fodor's Review

Chef Silvana Salcido Esparza has taken Mexican cuisine to a new level. Expect guacamole made to order at your table and modern Mexican specialties such as cochinita pibil, 12-hour slow-roasted pork with red achiote and sour orange, and chiles en nogada, a delicious traditional dish from central Mexico featuring a spicy poblano pepper stuffed with fruit, chicken, and raisins. The flavor-packed food consistently draws packs of people, but you can drink in the intimate atmosphere—and a specialty margarita or agua fresca (fruit water)—at the bar while you wait for a table.
