Critic’s Notes

Carlos Gaytan continues to generate incredibly vibrant taste combinations by marrying classic French techniques with Mexico’s dynamic flavor palette. Ask yourself this question: “What would I order at a French brasserie crossed with a family-run Mexican restaurant?” Easy answer: Mexique’s seafood mousse tamal in a lemony bouillabaisse, the pibil-style rabbit rillettes, and the tequila-marinated skate wing with a tomato-habanero beurre blanc. The kitchen’s pace slows on weekends, but the friendly service delights, entertains, and educates in equal measure.
