From the owners of the Public House, this restaurant on the ground floor of the Bell Telephone building promises Southwestern-influenced cuisine — filet Oscar gets a glaze of serrano chiles; Caeser salad is dotted with plantain croutons — and an extensive tequila selection.
My wife and I went down for Valentine's Day dinner and really enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent (I recommend the taquido's app and the Rock Bass) and we had a bottle of wine with dinner, all at a reasonable price. We loved the decor and are looking forward to heading back on a Friday or Saturday so that we can stay later into the evening for more drinks at the bar. Posted by Ed: Feb.

Surprised to find it empty on a Sat. night at 8. While the decor was very nice I didn't get the Southwest or Spanish influence discribed on their site. Our booth for 4 was very tight. The banquetts looked a bit more comfortable. I enjoyed the crab cakes but was not impressed by the presentation of any dish at my table. They were decorated with hints of colored spritzes to add visual excitement but had no flavor or referance to the dish. The cocktails were great, tiquila selections amazing and the bar looked like it might be great on a week night due to location. Unfortunately I had a sever MSG reaction. Experienced only once before in China town 25 years ago. Not something you forget. I'd still take a client for a drink but I'd skip the food. Posted by Andrea: Nov. November 18th, 2007 at 11:31 PM
