A megahip Mexican cantina, this folk art–bedecked spot is a scene just waiting to happen. There are no surprises in terms of the food; you know the drill—tacos, burritos, quesadillas—but it’s all tasty and filling, and some of it comes with some surprising accompaniments, such as tapenade, along with the usual guacamole and sour cream. Despite it attempting to appear like a hole-in-the-wall, mom-and-pop joint, it’s really a slick, hip operation, and so the food and overall experience feels much more processed than Mexican restaurants resembling this usually are. This is a popular place late weekend nights as people start trickling out of the hotel’s jam-packed nightclubs.
