Xochitl (pronounced "so-cheet") serves up a modern take on authentic Mexican cuisine, and a great variety of mixed drinks to go along. Seating is prompt and spacious in a warmly decorated hall, and the servers are knowledgeable and friendly-they'll make guacamole for you at the table to go with fresh tortilla chips. Try one of their tempting seafood dishes, such as their Vuelve a la Vida ("Return to Life"), a shrimp, octopus, and oyster cocktail served with jalapenos, tomatoes, and avocado. Or go for one of their hot dishes like the Pechuga de Pollo Rellena, a sesame-crusted chicken breast smothered in pepper sauce and served with fresh tortillas. The Xochitl lounge is a good option as well, with comfortable couches and a long bar.
