2016 BEST New Restaurant, South
Authentic Mexican food? In Braintree? At long last, yes. Owners Roberto Leon and Guadalupe Fuentes lovingly plate real-deal Jaliscan dishes such as hearty torta ahogada (a spicy pork and bean sandwich) and a hauntingly complex enchiladas mole with chicken. The meandering river nearby adds to the charm, as does a tequila bar that stocks rare vintages.
