We were lucky enough to visit this brand new Mexican restaurant in the SE section while visiting relatives in Portland (and they are lucky enough to be within walking distance).

The inside is very nicely decorated. We sat outside. This will improve when the construction in the lot next door is done, however Xico has made considerable effort to block the not so great view in that lot. The restaurant is right on a bus route too.

This is not your typical tacos and burritos restaurant, but upscale cuisine. There were so many starters to choose from that we ended up picking several for the table then splitting entrees. The food was all delicious, carefully prepared, and attractively presented. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Food and wine prices were more than reasonable.

We live "back east" but would definitely like to eat here if we are ever visiting Portland again.
