When I lived in California I became friends with several people I later realized I couldn’t stand. One of whom took me to this restaurant which instantly became a favorite. This is Mexican, yes, but it’s fancy Mexican, not greasy taco joint Mexican. My chipotle cream chicken with black beans and rice is directly inspired by their chipotle chicken. I took my dad, Meredith, and Meredith’s gorgeous and brilliant sister Heather there and, of course, tried their food too. The chipotle chicken was still my favorite in spite of serious competition from the delicious prawn dishes and fajitas. Go here for a beautiful, romantic atmosphere or hit the bar for a laid-back, lantern-lit dinner and drinks.
