The dramatic interior of this restaurant has three levels of stained-glass windows, a fountain, artwork, and beautiful furniture from central Mexico. The food is traditional but creative. The grilled beef prepared Tampíqueña-style is especially popular, as is the catch of the day wrapped in maguey leaves. Those with lighter appetites will want to try the tortilla soup or seafood appetizer of shrimp, scallops, and squid. Performances (Wed.-Fri. 7:30-8:30 pm) by folk dancers and a mariachi band add to the ambience. There's also a cocktail lounge where you can have a drink or cigar before, or after, dinner. Closed Mon.
