Restaurants, Mexican Lower East Side

This downtown eatery successfully walks the line between haute Mexican and low-end burrito parlor. Yellow walls and Talavera tiles dress up the tiny space, and the kitchen’s efforts to reach higher is evidenced by the vivid flavors, thoughtful presentation—and elevated pricing (a small guac costs $9). The namesake smoky mole poblano coats a juicy half chicken, and warm crêpes with whipped cream are an elegant end to the meal—even if the experience is a little rushed.
