BEST MODERN MEXICANA RESTAURANT - 2007
Padre's Modern Mexican Cuisine - CLOSED
For starters, we're hooked on the lobster thermidor quesadilla, and lately we can't resist the cilantro mousse with chips, which makes an addicting accompaniment to one of Padre's top-notch margaritas. As for entrees, duck breast tacos with tomatillo salsa are a fine alternative to ubiquitous carne asada tacos (of course, they have those, too), and the pollo relleno chicken breast stuffed with poblanos, goat cheese, caramelized onions and corn, and slathered in poblano cream sauce is a guilty pleasure. Well, maybe not that guilty we've ordered it too many times to count.
