"Order the coles de bruselas (brussels sprouts, bacon, and grapes). Brussels sprouts with grapes seem to be a great pair; it's so delicious. Order it with the atún tostada and a side of elotes (Mexican-style street corn). Also try the smoky, smooth tequila cocktail, El Cubico."

"The local venison is served blood-rare with yogurt and a thick flour tortilla. Everything is good here, but this is inventive, surprisingly light, and well-balanced."
