Autentica Restaurant Review: Oswaldo Bibiano’s Mexican restaurant is among the exciting and growing cluster of eateries at 30th Avenue and Killingsworth Street. Dinner dishes emphasize recipes from Bibiano's native Guerrero, Mexico, each one elevated by nuanced, complex spice profiles. Mole dishes are standouts, with sauces made from 30 different ingredients including nuts, anise, plantains, cinnamon, chiles and chocolate. Other options are equally intriguing, including a fall/winter vegetable stew with mushrooms, potatoes, squash, carrots, figs and chiles, or a grilled cactus salad featuring avocado and cotija cheese. If you're in the mood for something simpler, order the Idaho rainbow trout marinated with green chiles. Cocktails focus on creative signature margaritas, such as pomegranate or spicy pepper. The engaging brunch menu proposes standards like huevos rancheros and chilaquiles, as well as less common treats like a torta with cotija cheese, lettuce, tomato and chile sauce. The attractive restaurant boasts terra cotta tiles and a dramatic open kitchen, but in warm weather, hold out for a table on the attractive outdoor patio.
