There’s a well-kept secret in the back room of Revolver Taco Lounge: a fine-dining haven featuring a dazzling eight-course tasting menu from chef-owner Regino Rojas. The homey ambience conjures the magical, cooking-with-love aura of the film Like Water for Chocolate. Terra-cotta cazuelas decorate the walls, and tables are set with fine white linens and gold-rimmed china. Rojas’s adorable mother takes center stage at a counter where she and her chef son put the finishing touches on heavenly dishes like sea bream ceviche with caviar and adobo-crusted Wagyu beef with morels. Reservations are required, and the cost is $85 (except when pricey ingredients are used lavishly).
