This downtown fixture features Santa Fe-style, quasi-fine dining that incorporates the heat of chipotle, jalapeño, ancho, poblano and Anaheim chiles, among others. Mango quesadillas make a nice accompaniment to a top-shelf margarita to start you off. Traditional entrées like the yummy spinach and mushroom burrito run around $10 to $15.
It's Santa Fe-style dining, under new ownership, on an unassuming side street. It's a refreshing start of ceviche — lime-marinated seafood covered in a salsa of tomatoes, scallions, cilantro and jalapenos — punching you in the taste buds while original artwork on display does the rest. Lastly, it's a delicious chile relleno: a whole Poblano chile filled with Mascarpone, goat and white cheddar cheeses, topped with ginger salsa.
