MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Straddling an entire corner and tucked along the edge of downtown LA, this airy spot woos with an open kitchen and industrial look combining exposed ducts, brick walls and glass-block windows.

Over in the kitchen, the menu goes on to please palates with favorites like chunky guacamole. Tostaditas de ceviche have just the right amount of crunch, heaped with citrus-marinated whitefish, diced cucumber, mango, avocado and slivered fresh chili for a zesty one-two punch. Enchiladas de mole arrive with generous chunks of roasted chicken and enveloped in a dark brown mole poblano that is sweet with ripe plantain and balanced by bitter chocolate and myriad other ingredients. Silky-smooth flan ends things nicely, especially with a shot of custard-rich rompope.
