Looked for any mentions of this place but could not find anything, sorry if this is a repeat. Was looking for a place to grab dinner before seeing Blue Man Group last night and Platiyo (right next to Mia Francesca) fit the bill perfectly. The menu is a nuevo-mexico style similar to Frontera, and seemed like the menu was a perfect match for fall weather. We started with 2 margaritas which were nothing spectacular, but not a disappointment either. We had an appetizer of wood fired beef tenderloin with root vegetable in a spicy mole sauce. Very good flavors, with a smoky chipotle bite to it.
For dinner, I ordered the double cut grilled pork chop in a pineapple mole sauce topes with green beans and bacon, with mashed sweet potatoes topped with chopped pecans and a slice of grilled pineapple. This was incredible. Slight sweetness brought out from the grilled pineapple was fantastic and the chop was cooked a perfect medium rare. The portion was far too large to come close to finishing (lucky for me today). My gf ordered the tilapia, which was served over sautéed spinach, with a cream sauce with corn. I don't know too much about her dish as I only had a bite (it was quite good) but I was getting full and wanted to enjoy more of the pork chop ;) The menu looked to have a nice variety and the room was very nice, with a large fireplace in the front room. I look forward to going back soon.
