.8 miles from the Courthouse. More an experience than a typical lunch spot, where else can you eat a quesadilla and buy a $2,000 Mexican armoire on your 60-minute lunch break? The eclectic owners are a well sought after interior design team who transformed their high-end Mexican furniture and pottery business into an authentic south of the border compound complete with an espresso/chocolate bar. In the parking lot, you can browse a selection of fine Mexican pottery and garden accessories while adjacent to the restaurant, through the coffee bar, is the highly regarded furniture store filled with old world furniture reminiscent of what you’d find in the most lavish haciendas in Mexico. The food, which pales in comparison to the ambiance and home furnishings, is certainly a major step above what you’d find around the courthouse. The lunch menu consists of what you’d expect to find at a mid-level Mexican restaurant with a few surprises. The quesadillas, tacos, enchiladas and fajitas are all solid and come with various meat, seafood and veggie options. The standouts are the steak quesadilla and the tilapia tacos with jicama slaw and chipolte sauce. There’s also traditional Tampiquenita (marinated skirt steak) and an interesting blackened salmon with an orange butter sauce. The surprises include Mexican mashed potatoes topped with chipoltes and cilantro, plantains and yucca fries. The tortillas are not only all made in-house but made in the open dining room in a unique oven where the flattened masa patties travel via conveyor belt through what can best be described as a tortilla roller coaster (definitely worth a look). Not a quick in and out, especially if you make time to browse through the furniture and finish up with a churro and a coffee.
