Easy—not cheesy—Southwestern style (beamed ceilings, polished cattle horns) is on display at this comfortable UES restaurant. On the regional Santa Fe–style menu, you’ll find a nouveau burrito stuffed with slow-roasted duck, and a thick grilled swordfish steak topped with a smoky chipotle sauce. Locals take to the bar after work, when a generous happy hour (Mon–Wed 5–8pm; Thu, Fri 5–7pm) offers five-buck appetizers and $6.25 margaritas in worthwhile flavors like cactus pear and pomegranate.
