Dining Guide

All things point to interior Mexico at this swank new East Austin restaurant. We started with earthy lentil dip served with house-made blue corn chips before savoring a type of ceviche seldom seen in Austin, tender red shrimp in a piquant aguachile marinade. Smoky carne asada was perfectly grilled and juicy alongside plump broiled tomatoes and toothsome corn tortillas. Braised pork belly carnitas took a back seat to pink pickled cauliflower atop a thick blue-corn tlacoyo that was surprisingly more appetizing than it looked. For dessert, warm churros made from hand-ground Mexican chocolate balanced out a spicy, not-too-sweet dipping sauce. Cocktails were rustic and a bit inaccessible; the Don Dario is a safe bet for a delicious margarita.
