Highlights

While I honor tradition in Mexican cuisine and pay homage to its authenticity, I would not be true to myself if I was unable to inject originality in my work and use my natural instinct to take a good thing and make it better for you. Today, the term fusion to describe cooking has come to mean the throwing together of anything. For me, fusion is more about an organic melding of techniques as well a thoughtful symbiosis of ingredients, while paying homage to tradition. Because my training is classical, I tend to apply long, slow braises to the meats for taco fillings, concentrate flavors through reduction and enrich and thicken with butter. So, if fusion applies to what I do, it would have to be more French Mex than anything else.

Rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by The food is always excellent. The server acts like he is doing a favor by serving us. Never has any manners. Doesn't smile. Doesn't greet us, doesn't say thank you. Rolls his eyes and every time we ask something, he has a bad attitude and and tries to explain why something cannot be done. The first time we tried to use a Restaurant.com coupon, the server complained that he had no idea why we were issued a coupon for the amount we had. Then he said "how do they expect us to make any money with these kind of coupons." Feb 28, 2013
