Local beer on tap. Local ingredients. Friendly but pretty slow service. Lots of offerings from basic to high end. Quesadilla to grilled fish. Fun lunch here.

Ended up in La Biznaga when I discovered that a neighboring restaurant no longer existed and another was closed for renovations. So lucky! The menu is filled with enticing choices, many unknown to me, including an extensive small plates portion. Perfect as I cannot always...More
