Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Top Chef Katsuji Tanabe delights diners with his classic dishes inspired by his childhood in Mexico. Barrio's signature plates include pork nachos, short rib barbacoa and grilled octopus tacos and whole red snapper for two. The 6,000 square-foot space is an upscale, earth-toned lounge with bar seats, tables and booths for parties of any size. If you can't dine in, there's also a bodega out front that sells tacos, coffee and churros to go.
