Barrio Star

From veteran restaurateur Isabel Cruz comes this upscale take on Mexican fare. The colorful interior boasts rustic, Día de los Muertos-style decorations, and the menu features signature dishes like fish tacos and elote (roasted corn on the cob sprinkled with cotija cheese and slathered with jalapeño butter). Don’t miss the blackberry margarita, made with house-infused roasted jalapeño tequila. B, L, D (daily).
