The culinary philosophy of this restaurant can best be summed up with a phrase that appears frequently on the menu: "just like in Mexico City." Luckily, chef and co-owner Rene Hidalgo was smart enough to offer Mexico City dishes without asking us to sacrifice our Tex-Mex conventions. There are chips and two excellent salsas on the table, frozen margaritas at the bar, and there's even a choice of chicken or beef fajitas on the menu, in case you aren't big on real Mexican cuisine. Standouts from the interior include the asado steak covered with a nopal cactus leaf and the Mexico City-style enchiladas.
