We had the best meal here that we've had in many many years ... and then committed the impardonable offense of going back the next night to see if the experience could be replicated.
We were not disappointed. The Tropicana Mocajete, billed as their decades-in-the-making recipe, was one of the most satisfying, unusual, and delicious entrees we've ever had.
But the other courses were as stunningly good. The avocado and warm tortilla chips were crisp, lightly salted, hearty. The lava cake was uniquely stunning. Yet another highlight of the evening was the Mexican Flambe Coffee which was heated at table side, and prepared in an astounding "flaming coffee-fall" as the waiter poured flaming coffee from one dish held 5 feet high to another and finally to the coffee mug sitting on the table.
It's impossible to capture the drama of the meal in a simple review!
The live music (mariachis one evening and the incomparably good Rosalia de Cuba the other) would have warranted a hefty cover charge anywhere else. Instead, revelers and dancers, lovers and girls on their night out, enjoyed 3 hours of non-stop, lustily delivered favorites and unknowns ...
Truly a stellar evening in a gorgeous, candle-lit restaurant with wonderful art and sculpture ... and we were glad to have challenged Tropicana to prove themselves two nights in a row!
