Featuring Mexican fare from the southern state of Oaxaca, look for appetizers like grilled cactus with onions and jalapenos, and shrimp and octopus sauteed in pico de gallo. Oaxaca is known for its chocolate, and there are several items on the menu topped with the savory chocolate-inflected mole sauce, including enchiladas, tamales, Cornish hen and grilled chicken. Seafood includes the whole red snapper served Veracruz-style in a zesty garlic and onion tomato sauce. Salads and sandwiches, like the signature torta of grilled tenderloin with chorizo sausage, beans, avocado and Mexican mayonnaise are lighter options.
