Fodor's Review

Anchoring a downtown corner under a bright neon sign, La Esquina looks like a fast-food taqueria, with cheap tacos sold for take-out, but it's actually three superb south-of-the-border spots in one, including a café and brasserie. The real draw is the basement brasserie, like a Mexican speakeasy, accessible (by reservation only) through an unmarked door just inside the ground-floor taqueria.
