Brothers Mike and Michel Issa recast their bi-level bar Mitchell’s as a Southwestern restaurant called Piquant. The main floor offers a lounge with a full bar, the dining room is upstairs, and the 30-seat patio rests out back. The duo spared the bare-brick space from loud on-theme accents (though you might spy a potted cactus in our slideshow) — brighter colors pop up in the food. The menu spans tacos (with homemade tortillas), sliders (bison and crabcake), four types of ceviches, two kinds of chili, and a slew of entrées. And plates themselves are higher than a Dallas cheerleader’s blowout.
