King crab tostada at La Cenita

Gun for hire Akhtar Nawab (La Esquina, Craft) oversees the kitchen at this 240-seat Mexican cantina. Choose from a menu of spicy small plates: braised lobster tacos with poblano crema, a king crab tostada topped with chipotle ash and a tuna-and-watermelon ceviche. The airy, bi-level space is decked out with graffiti murals and an orange tiled bar pouring tequila and frozen cocktails.
