2005 Best Mexican Restaurant

Olé Mexican Grill

Delicious proof that true Mexican cuisine rarely involves either the words “chimichanga” or “Tabasco,” Olé’s menu is weighted toward seafood with authentic and traditional dishes full of superior ingredients. Don’t miss the pescado a la veracruzana (roast snapper in a garlic-tomato-caper sauce). The guacamole is mashed fresh at your table and served in the mortar, while even the desserts—the deep-fried cheesecake burrito, for example—are surprisingly good.
