Suenos- mexicanInspired by the same Mexican region, whole branzino ($25) is marinated with citrus and the common Yucatecan spice achiote. Goat ($25) is plastered with a wet-chile rub, then slow-roasted and served with a comforting mash of sweet ripe plantains. Even the black beans and rice ($5) is a paragon of the form.
Dinner kicks off with poached-then-grilled octopus touched w/ lemon & black pepper, Hudson Valley foie w/ mixed onion jam & black pepper brioche, and beef tongue w/ Vidalia onions & gribiche, a dish they describe as "very Frenchy", probably because of the tongue-on-tongue action.
Tortilla Republic This 125-seat Mextaurant-cum-margarita bar in WeHo's doing south-of-the-border deliciousness (carnitas w/ caramelized orange, sour cherry salsita'd duck confit tacos) inside a steely mod-Mex interior equipped with a white onyx bar pouring 48 sippable tequilas (including two Extra Anejos), and margs ranging from the extra spicy "Jalapeno" to the reposado, Cointreau, lime, and Grand Marnier-floated "Perfect", even though you'll be anything but after a couple of each.
