Bravos Mexican Restaurant

Anybody who remembers the glory days of the original Ninfa's will welcome the decidedly ungentrified Bravos experience with cries of joy. For starters, it passes the benchmark for a true Tex-Mex restaurant: good nachos and cold margaritas, which come in a variety of flavors. Ambitious entrées include a good cabrito punched up with garlic and cumin, and some strongly seasoned pork carnitas.
