Mexico Cantina Y Veracruz Cooking
Servers try hard to make customers happy at this fire-lit retreat that offers respite from the hurly-burly of the mall. Brazilian-born executive chef Fernanda Fulkerson produces a menu that merges her own contemporary riffs with more traditional fare. Expect tacos, tamales, burritos and fajitas as well as a fine chile relleno, but also look for entrees like tender chunks of slow-cooked pork, seared rare ahi tuna with grilled vegetables or chicken breast in poblano cream sauce. Start with a trio of dips that includes mild-mannered guacamole, sultry chili con queso and spicy bean puree. Sides include lively Mexican rice and whole pinto beans simmered with chilies and bacon. Don't fill up on the tortilla chips spritzed with lime because desserts are huge, and don't expect much of a wine list - this is Margarita-ville, amigos, and the drinks are muy bueno. Open for lunch and dinner.
