El Machito

With two local successes under his belt (La Gloria and the Frutería), Johnny Hernandez has chosen mesquite-grilled meats (plus a few other items) as his next challenge. He seems to be off to a good start. Roasted chicken was rewardingly moist, with lots of smoky flavor in the meat, while a gargantuan pork shank came with a convincingly Mexican sauce of guajillo chiles and garlic—and could have fed three of us. Queso fundido with chorizo verde was way more cheese than sausage, but it was still tasty. Both the noisy dining room and expansive patio, with lanterns swaying in the trees, were full of enthusiastic customers. Word seems to have spread quickly. (7/14)
