Since Nobu Matsuhisa made it famous stateside, black cod with miso has turned up on Japanese menus all over. On Mexican menus, not so much. Chef Julian Medina of Toloache, a local favorite for dressed-up Mexican, seems bent on changing that. His fall menu includes bacalao trufado: miso-and-tequila-glazed black cod with hon-shimeji mushrooms, corn, and chipotle–black truffle butter. It’s “simply divine,” UES Mayor reports on Chowhound. “I been to this place before but never enjoyed the food as much as I do now!”
