With salsa dancing on Tuesdays and Latin-style parties Sunday night, the lively scene is just as enticing as the food at Lucha Cartel. The menu includes staples like tacos, guacamole and empanadas, though dining duos with big appetites order the parrillada for two, a Mexican-style barbecue dish with steak, choizo, chicken, shrimp, cactus, onion and cheese. Set in the heart of Old City, the restaurant’s name refers to the traditional masked Mexican wrestlers, which are incorporated into the interior décor alongside funky Dia de los Muertos-style imagery.
