First Taste

When a new spot opens in town, we can't wait to check it out -- and let you know our initial impressions, share a few photos, and dish about some menu items. First Taste, as the name implies, is not a full-blown review, but instead a peek inside restaurants that have just opened, sampling a few items, and satisfying curiosities (yours and ours).

Taking the place of the brightly painted Luv Me Tender BBQ spot is Acapulco Pasteleria y Antojitos. It's a bakery and fast-casual Mexican restaurant in one, and it's crowded.
