itzocan bistro - report

what a charming place! went last night for the first time and was very impressed. we ordered the pate (excellent with killer sweet chile strips), mussels (incredible - broth of tequila, jalapeno, tomato, garlic, fresh epazote, butter - yum!) and, for entree, pumpkin-seed crusted snapper (also quite good - subtle note of chipotle in white wine/butter sauce). portions are generous - we were too full for dessert. with one beer, the bill was $38. the service was very nice.

i've also been to itzocan cafe, once, and at the time was not terribly impressed. this was better all the way around. on the strength of my itzocan bistro meal, i am going to try the cafe again.

when you go, get the mussels.
