THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Taqueros/Coyoacan Restaurant Review

: Despite being ravaged by Hurricane Katrina, restaurant Coyoacan continues to exist in a new form: a merger---in both name and menu---with its downstairs neighbor, Taqueros, has resulted in Taqueros/Coyoacan. Chef Guillermo Peters continues to delight diners with his daring Mexican cuisine in this different, yet still familiar, establishment. While those unaccustomed to paying fine dining prices for Mexican food may grouse, chipotle-stuffed filet mignon, chicken in mole sauce and beef chile rellenos seasoned with raisins and toasted almonds are worth every penny. On Fridays, the freshest catches-of-the-day are featured on a special seafood menu. The handsome downstairs room (the upstairs is reserved for private parties and events) resembles resort-like Mexico: woven cotton tablecloths and napkins, heavy wooden tables and chairs, adobe-style walls hung with colorful Mexican marketplace scenes, and a bar glimmering with fancy tequila bottles. Service is perhaps not what it should be---a wine steward would be helpful in pairing wines with such boldly flavored foods---but waiters are at least versed in the chef's techniques.
