Mexican restaurant from Raul Arreola, a veteran of Frontera Grill and Topolobampo.
Dont be fooled by the storefront setting: this is a restaurant set on greatness. The menu is pan-Mexican, featuring Oaxacan moles, Pueblan salsas, Guerrerense meats, and other regional specialties. One bite into the fish tacos and my dining companion pronounced them her favorite ever; the pollito envinado, a little wood-grilled chicken served with red wine-guajillo sauce, gave me new hope for restaurant chicken. Cochinita pibil, a Yucatecan classic, is pork slow-cooked with achiote and other relatively mild spices, then perked up with pickled onions and incendiary habanero salsa—another don't-miss regional specialty. Delicate handmade tortillas add to every dish. Adding to the pleasure, Mixteco Grill is BYO, with a gracious staff that welcomes parties of all sizes.
