Mexican Restaurant
“El Vez is a Mexican restaurant with some truly over-the-top, tacky decor. The food is excellent, but getting a table is difficult without a reservation. Getting a spot at the bar may be your best bet. The margarita options are all wonderful, but the frozen blood orange margaritas are worth the wait. El Vez is about a 10-minute cab ride away.”
