Our Summary Review

"No burritos or chimichangas here!" cheer fans of the "delightful, creative" tapas and street food given "a typical José Andrés twist" (e.g. grasshopper tacos "you'll jump for") at this high-end Penn Quarter Mexican with a "funky", "loud" atmosphere; some say that service, while "friendly", "doesn't match the quality of the food", but for most, niceties like "super-strong" margaritas and the "edible entertainment" of guacamole made tableside extend the fiesta feeling; P.S. it recently expanded next door, doubling the size of its bar and adding an avant-garde lounge area plus more tables, possibly outdating the Decor rating.
