The spring-break vibe at this casual offshoot of nearby Rayuela is fostered by potent cocktails and a Caribbean beach-bar decor. The menu of shareable tapas suffers a few pitfalls (the shredded-chicken tacos are too timid). Better choices include the white-corn tamale with huitlacoche and thick slices of Spanish blood sausage, and a crisp flatbread covered in melted blue cheese and steak. Selecting a dessert is more straightforward: There are just three choices, among them a fine orange-scented warm chocolate cake.
