Traditional Mexican in an intimate dining room in Rush Street's Whiskey Bar.

Our Review

Star chef Richard Sandoval of Modern Mexican collaborated on this cozy folk-art-decorated room tucked behind Rush Street’s see-and-be-seen Whiskey Bar. But the menu is now mostly traditional Mexican, with more changes planned for later in the spring. Well-balanced guacamole, made to order and served with crisp chips, would be at home in a neighborhood spot, as would chilorio sopes brimming with pulled pork. Other standards include carne asada, three-cheese enchiladas, combo plates, and chicken adobado. But a trio of extremely salty Mexico City-style steak tacos made me wonder why I was spending $10 for what would cost half that at my local taqueria. The highlights came from the more sophisticated camp that is no longer: creamy balsamic-painted roasted corn soup with a huitlacoche dumpling and a picture-perfect entree of seared coriander-chile-crusted tuna slices propped up around boniato puree on a hibiscus-blood orange-habanero emulsion.
