If they quell an urge to overgrill and oversalt, this handsome cafe could become an upscale Mexican staple. Appealing sopes (pizza-style wheels of cornmeal), mashed-on-the-spot guacamole, substantial quesos and rosemary-scented roast chicken are winners. A brooding mural and spiffy crowd add visual interest.
