Grizzelda's

Atmospheric Eastside eatery blends coastal and Interior Mexican with Tex-Mex.

La Catedral del Marisco

The "cathedral of seafood" is a jaw-dropper. The menu is half seafood and half grilled, meat-centric Norteño. Try the tostada de pulpo, a pile of tender, griddled octopus with scallions and pepper.

Las Cazuelas

Look for a dozen egg dishes for early risers, as well as machacado and nopales, enchiladas potosinas, and plenty of Mexican standards.
