Nice addition to Stapleton, right across from DoSi... I have a vested interest since it's located a soft 9-iron away from where I live. The new owners upgraded the interior significantly since it was the dreadful Los Lobos. I resisted this place at first, since they were going after a mid-market gringo crowd but it has won me over with a fairly eclectic menu that satisfies both obrero and white collar alike. The gimmick here are combinations served in Molcajetes but one can easily just go with autentico little tacos or quesadillas made with a light fresh masa. What they need is a liquor license to get the margarita and guacamole crowd, no shame in that. If you go, just ask chef Ricardo what he recommends, this DF veteran has been around some of the best NYC kitchens and has some great ideas about where to take the menu.
