It used to be that Mexican restaurants could get away with being pretty shitty, just because almost all of them were pretty shitty. Since there wasn’t much good to compare the bad to, we basically had to take what we could get. But the folks behind the Feliz group of restaurants — first Fort Washington’s Best of Philly-winning Cantina Feliz, then Fairmount’s La Calaca Feliz, and now this new Manayunk derivation — continue to raise the bar. Grab a group of friends and feast on fish tacos, red snapper and lamb barbacoa. As a nice bonus, all specialty cocktails and margaritas are under $10.
