Jason Marcus' interpretation of Mexican small plates has quickly made it one of the most innovative restaurants in a neighborhood that takes pride in being different. And consider the back story: "The menu at Xixa is the work of Jason's fictional twin who grew up in the suburbs of Mexico City." We love the chef's tasting menu, which samples everything from roasted lamb meatballs to charred octopus. And though the vibe here mirrors a Victorian cocktail den, the beverage list steers clear of the traditional margarita and offers an extensive wine selection instead.
