Bookended by mainstay Backstreet Cafe and classic Caracol, this Montrose restaurant is the gem of Hugo Ortega and Tracy Vaught’s growing empire. They’ve been serving thoughtful regional Mexican cuisine before that was a thing in upscale American dining. This isn’t just an exercise in superficial “elevation” though. Ortega’s focus on flavor and deep understanding of tradition result in food that is at once delicious and authentic, like sautéed grasshoppers with guacamole in house-made blue corn tortillas.
