This high-energy spot downstairs from the Hotel Valencia features updated Tex-Mex fare, including tacos with such nontraditional fillings as chicken-fried oysters or guajillo-braised short ribs, alongside more elaborate dishes like crepes with duck in a tamarind–cherry–grilled onion sauce or camarones al Diablo (grilled shrimp in chipotle-butter). Decorated in bold Mexican hues with midcentury modern tables and banquettes, the multi-level dining room is bright and inviting. Sip drinks in the Balcony Lounge with views of the river, or dine outside on an elevated shaded patio, which overlooks the River Walk but isn’t in the thick of the touristy crowds. It’s also a lively, bright place for Mexican brunch on the weekend.
