Alcomar

Fresh seafood from Gulf Coast and West Coast waters appears in a variety of enticing forms. Plump Gulf shrimp, arranged on a luxurious pool of silken atole corn sauce, are topped with a crunchy crown of Manchego cheese and herbed bread crumbs, and enlivened by a piquant chile arbol aioli and flavor bombs of grilled cherry tomatoes. But be warned, the dessert menu will leave you wanting more.

El Alma Cafe y Cantina

Chef Alma Alcocer-Thomas' take on casual Mexico City cuisine is approachable, affordable, and delicious. Brunch includes Huevos Franceses, made with eggs and spinach resting on corn pudding; or Thomas' version of migas, called Huevos Revueltos. Throw down a Mimosa Feliz and don't miss the gorgeous views from the upstairs patio.

El Gallo

This Austin-style Tex-Mex joint has been family-owned since the Fifties. Try the cabrito, and stay for the mariachi trio that plays Thursdays through Saturdays.
