Discard any ideas you have about Tex-Mex at this deeply cultured restaurant that takes the gentrified food of old Mexico City to new levels. The setting is dark, leathery and quiet, and the food is meaty and piquant. Steaks come with a range of Mexican flavors that bring out the best in beef. Get a table under the stars.
It's in Highland Park, about 4 miles north of downtown.
