Just went here tonight - fantastic Mexican and BYO tequila.

Started with the the tres crepas (huitlacoche, zucchini flower, and goat cheese) - they were good. The guacamole was just really well done.

I had the skirt steak- it was well prepared with an amazing poblano crema on the side. Others had the enchiladas which were very good (the salsa roja could have had a little more kick) and the brochetas which had some of the best shrimp I've here had.

Margarita mixes were the traditional lime, which had a nice bite with enough sweetness, and the mango which was a little too sweet.

To finish, they brought out a couple complimentary digestif tequilas - one was a coffee-infused Patron and another that I can't remember. The Patron was really good - the coffee taste lingered in my mouth for at least a few minutes.

If you like gourmet Mexican and BYO, get here. The food is really quite good.
