La Super-Rica Taqueria

You’ll wait in line to get in, but once you taste the most authentic Mexican food you’ve ever had, you won’t mind the wait. Julia Child loved “Super-Rica” and what Julia says, goes. Super casual, super yummy.

Loquita

Start with the Carpaccio, follow it up with the Tortilla Española, and end with the delicious Seafood Paella.

DINNER
