Mexican in West Hollywood & Mid-City

Terrific nuevo Mexican food served in whitewashed brick environs, with dangling bird-cage chandeliers and a terrific marble tequila bar. The slow-cooked carnitas melt in your mouth. It also spit-roasts beef, grills sweet corn and folds tasty tacos and enchiladas. Its hora feliz (happy hour) is among the best in the city.

It's diagonally across from the Grove and the Original Farmers Market, for a fun before- or after-meal excursion. Valet parking: $6.
