Concierge.com's insider take:
In this warm, hacienda-style space, chef Lanny Lancarte, a Fort Worth native, prepares his alta cocina mexicana, which in this case translates to fusion cuisine. He likes to combine Texan ingredients with Mexican and international ones, as in elk loin with mole colorado and gnocchi, or foie gras with pan de nuez. The extensive wine list has a refreshing, exciting focus on South American wines, and their pairings let you dig deeper into their cellar than your budget would normally allow. Tequila options are broad as well, and premeal cocktails include the creative Margaritas, such as one made with Sangria. The lunch menu features tapas and a number of cemitas, Mexican sandwiches on sesame-seed rolls. Although the vibe is casual, prices can climb fairly high; most main dishes hover around $40.
