Toloache Restaurant Review

: Casual-chic surroundings nicely complement chef Julian Medina’s haute Mexican delights at this Theater District restaurant. Diners nurse creatively concocted margaritas and dig into elevated Mex dishes like chicken enchiladas slathered in fig salsa and Veracruz-style paella with epazote-scented rice, shrimp, chorizo, tilapia, chicken, clams and octopus. There’s a ceviche bar, too. Waiters push the guacamole, but there’s too much on the menu to let the guac fill you up. Foie gras tacos, for example, are nicely balanced and not overpowering. And if you’re in the mood for challenge, try the chapulines tacos, which are --- of course --- Oaxacan-style dried grasshoppers. Slightly tamer are the Baja-style tilapia tacos with spicy jícama slaw and guacamole. Heartier dishes include the super-tender pomegranate-and-tequila-braised beef ribs, which float temptingly in a celery root purée. The caramelized goat’s milk crêpe is the perfect way to top off a meal --- with a shot of tequila, of course.
