Best Upscale Mexican 

I can think of a dozen reasons to fall in love with Javier Verdugo’s polished Mexican restaurant, hiding in plain view on 16th Street: fresh-tasting margaritas; crunchy chips and an excellent salsa bar; slurpable aguas frescas; enchiladas swathed in Corazon’s signature beet-chile sauce; juicy cochinita pibil; heavenly tacos al vapor; beefy steak Mexicano – all of it so deliciously spot-on there should be lines out the door.
