Cafe Poca Cosa Restaurant Review: With chef Suzana Davila at the helm, this downtown favorite can always be counted on for a surprise or two. Davila shops at the farmers markets every morning and brings only the freshest products to her kitchen. The Mexican food is clever without being coy, modern yet deeply traditional and savory with a hint of sweetness. The daily-changing menu is written on portable chalkboards with the servers describing each item in detail. There’s always a beef dish, a pork dish, a vegetable dish and several chicken dishes. Make it easy on yourself and pick the plato Poca Cosa, a three-item combination plate of Davila's choosing. If you’re in luck, you’ll get one of the famous Poca Cosa moles, richly layered sauces of chocolate, peanuts, coffee liquor and other savory ingredients, slow-cooked with tender meat. Every meal comes with a salad, rice, beans and warm tortillas to share. And while there is a nice wine list, the margaritas are creative and definitely the way to go.
