Las Fajitas Mexican Grill might serve up its Mexican dishes fast, but that's where the similarities between this eatery and typical fast-food places end. Along with the chefs' attention to using the freshest ingredients, from the vegetables to the boneless, skinless chicken breasts and slow-roasted pork, they also remain health conscious. All of the authentic Mexican recipes get their flavors from only fresh vegetables, with no artificial flavors or enhancements. The menu includes everything from burritos and tacos to fresh seafood and breakfast options.

You could order the fishermen stew at 6ix Park Grill every day, and you'd never be eating exactly the same meal. That's because its mix of shellfish and heirloom-tomato broth is built on the daily market's catch—and who can say what the market will bring? The same delicious whimsy applies to entrees that come with foraged mushrooms, such as the California lamb chop and the mushroom risotto, made with an aged 18-year balsamic.

What can you count on, then? The eatery's fierce devotion to California cuisine, wines included. That means chicken and avocado sandwiches and fish tacos during lunch, and locally raised lamb at dinner. The location screams Cali just as loudly, with palm trees flanking the outdoor dining space and a fire pit that crackles the melodies of Beach Boys tunes if you listen closely.
