  • Beautiful restaurant with a lively atmosphere. Recommend the short rib sopes!
  • Rick Bayless's West Hollywood hot-spot where the prices are justified by the provenance of the ingredients (i.e. suckling pig cochinita pibil).
  • Sipping Tequila is plentiful +1 Crab and shrimp enchilada is to die for +1 Lounge +1
  • Try the Hot Cakes Indigenas with white corn pancakes, whipped goat cheese, agave syrup, red chile-glazed, applewood-smoked bacon & 2 sunny side-up eggs would close out the weekend perfectly.
  • Obsessed with huevos mexicanas con shrimp!
  • The sweet corn and goat cheese tamales
  • Rick Bayless's LA outpost delivers stunning contemporary Mexican in a high-ceilinged setting. Try one of the superb ceviches with a pour of CD!
  • Order the tinga poblana, a duo of pork shoulder and belly with house-made chorizo and chipotle chiles:
  • The short rib sopes are AMAZING!!!!!!!!
  • Try the tinga poblana, a tender duo of pork shoulder and belly with homemade chorizo and smoky chipotle sauce.
  • Don't go to red o! Waited over one hour past our reservation to be seated. Out if town guests. Nightmare! Not at all helpful.
  • Fans of Rick Bayless will enjoy his name, in big letters, on the sign out front. That was about all I enjoyed, unfortunately.
  • Try the Scorpion margarita - it's spicy and awesome
  • I can be pretty critical of restaurants but EVERYTHING we had was incredible! The corn chowder w/ crab is a must, as are the chicken enchiladas and the bunelos.
  • The plaintain sopes & alacran margarita are vital. Service is top notch contrary to Yelp reviews!
  • Try the sopes!!
  • One of my favorite happy hours in West Hollywood
  • Taylor the bartender is amazing! Happy hour is fab! Food was yummy!!!
  • Go for their happy hour for the food! Between 5-7, great prices for expetional food.
  • Get a Seafood tower and Queso Fundido, the best of both worlds!
