THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tapatio Restaurant Review

: Bruce Hildreth, the chef and owner of this trendy restaurant across from Nationwide Arena, describes his cuisine as Mexican, South American, Spanish and Caribbean Rim. Traditional it's not---in fact, if a Peruvian or Caribbean native walked in, we suspect they'd hardly recognize a single thing. But who cares? The menu is fun, the food is tasty, and we like chef Hildreth's (and executive chef Todd Wallace's) eclecticism. The fresh bread, particularly the red chile loaf, is a house specialty. Don't fill up on it, though; other good things are yet to come. We recommend you dunk it into a bowl of the signature black bean soup. Or, once you've finished the delicious grilled pork chops in calypso barbecue sauce, use that bread to mop up every last drop of sauce. Some decent and reasonably priced wines are available, but just about everybody opts for the margaritas.
