This upscale neighborhood hangout from the team behind taqueria favorite La Superior is adorned with Mexican art, exposed pipes, and lofted ceilings that make the small space feel roomy. The reasonably priced menu focuses on Mexican tapas. On a recent visit, standout dishes included “La Mission,” a fish filet with jalapeño-cilantro mayo and pico de gallo, and the decadent “Rubinsky,” a dish featuring bacon-wrapped, cheese-stuffed prawns. The salsa sampler ranges as wide in flavor and texture as it does in color — from thick, smoky, and brick red to fresh and spicy salsa verde. The extensive tequila and mezcal selection is a plus, but the cocktails at this cash-only spot were underwhelming; mango margaritas are bland and not worth the $12 price tag.
