Prepare to be wowed: The colors and flavors at El Sacromonte excite like a bursting piñata. Psychedelic ornamentation from the artisan-rich city of Tonala, Mexico, dangles overhead, and beet-dyed onions and veggie roses sweeten most every plate. The dazzling Mexican-inspired cuisine, with its fruity moles and exotic sauces, is both upscale and oh-so abundant; finishing a meal of zesty mango ceviche and meltingly tender pork shank is a feat reserved for the ridiculously rotund (as playfully pictured on the wall). It’s a bit of a stretch to market the menu as “passed down from the loving grandmothers,” but with El Sacromonte’s formidable bar and professional service, indulgence is definitely part of the equation. Lunch and dinner daily.
