Delightful haute Mexican eatery with a fun atmosphere, great margaritas on the rocks, and appetizers to make your tummy sing like a sailor on shore leave. The lobster thermidor quesadilla would make Napoleon proud, since he named the original dish. And those pork enchiladas in tomatillo sauce are the bomb, boss. Live Latin music Friday and Saturday nights.
