My life was just changed by a $9 pastrami taco. Also beet juice mescal cocktail. And you might as well try pistachio guac like everyone says.

Chilaquiles, a traditional Mexican hangover cure that is typically made from leftovers, eggs and salsa-soaked fried corn-tortilla strips, is dressed up here with meaty maitake mushrooms.

Try the lamb barbacoa taco, from Ryan Sutton's review: "The chef takes the belly and ribs, rubs them in adobo, buries them in avocado leaves, and cooks them low and slow."

There is a dish with melted cheese and lobster. This should really go without saying, but ORDER THAT.
