An excerpt from the December 2010 newsstand issue:

More mod than Mex, with concrete floors and a glass-wrapped dining room; the most appealing tables are under pecan trees out front, and bands occasionally entertain in the picnic-table-equipped backyard. The menu trends downscale, though chef Nidxia Lopez throws in surprises like chile en nogada; in this case, the poblano is filled with ground beef and dotted with nibbles of pineapple, apricot, and raisins.
