Will be in Chicago Dec 26-29. We are avid mexican food fanaticos and were not impressed with Topolobambo and Frontera, both of which we went to last month(sorry to you Bayless fans, but I think both these places have slipped significantly since we where there last year).Where else would you chowhound a recommend that fill the following requirements:1. real Mexican food, not tex-mex( love good sopes, refritos, pastor, anything with lamb).2. Good ambience, decor. Staying at the Waldorf, do not want to go very far to the outskirts of Chicago. 3. Good cocktails, tequila, mezcal selection.
Any thoughts??
