The Heavy Restaurant Group—that is, downtown's
, and Bellevue's
Purple Cafe and Wine Bars, as well as Lot No. 3
in Bellevue and The Commons
in Woodinville—created this upscale Mexican restaurant on Capitol Hill. The concept is "a Northwest approach to Mexican-inspired cuisine," with house-made salsas, short rib quesadillas, chipotle-seasoned scallops, and so forth. Also on offer: "creative, classic, and Latin-focused" cocktails and weekend brunch.
