Along with importing Portugal's unique recipes to the shores of Newark, Sol-Mar Restaurant envelops patrons in an atmosphere that recalls a sidewalk café in Lisbon. Adorned with leafy foliage, murals, and terra-cotta awnings, the dining room features large, arched windows through which commedia dell'Arte archetypes can make their dramatic exits. To top the earth-toned tablecloths, a menu of authentic Iberian fare features dishes such as creamy clams casino, stuffed salmon with crabmeat, and grilled veal chops.

Buffalo chicken tortas. Cajun burritos. Tofu fajitas seasoned with curry and cumin. These aren't your average Mexican dishes, and Boca Grande Cantina Mexicana isn't your average Mexican restaurant. There's a playfulness to the menu here, brought on by the chefs' willingness to experiment with ingredients from around the globe. They've found Indian food to be especially compatible with Mexican preparations; for proof, see the vegetarian burrito with red curry sauce or the lentil-stuffed pi?ata.

Ranchero Cantina's name suggests a Mexican restaurant, but it's not exactly that. It's more of a Tex-Mex joint, one that serves both Texas-ranch-style eats and cantina-style Mexican grub. Those looking for a bit of Texas can dig into thick-cut cowboy rib eyes, kissed by a flame and served with a side of horseradish sauce, or devour Texas barbecue smoked in house and flavored with housemade rubs and barbecue sauce.

For authentic Mexican food, the culinary team mashes up fresh guacamole studded with diced jalape?os, stuffs tacos with pineapple-braised pork shoulder, and saut?s jumbo gulf shrimp with chorizo. The bar pours shots of tequila, margaritas, and red and white sangria.

A lot can happen at Mi Tierra Restaurant & Bar. At lunch and dinnertime, white tablecloths hoist servings of ceviche, grilled sirloin, and barbecued ribs. The cocktail pro at the bar effortlessly shakes and stirs a variety of delicious drinks. Date nights become romantic, friendly groups bubble with laughter, and families settle squabbles with private plate-spinning competitions. But at night, the dance floor often comes alive with colored lights as the speakers on the ceiling blast music. Mi Tierra is no stranger to parties, and whether it's a holiday or just a weekend night, chances are good that one will encounter dancing and high spirits.

The rustic interior of Mexican Post sets the tone for the restaurant's menu and hourly Battle of the Alamo reenactments. Starters ($4.75–$7.45) include savory engine revvers such as classic quesadillas, bean dip, or the camarones Acapulco (five shrimp stuffed with cheese, wrapped in bacon, deep-fried, and served with chipotle sauce). Fulfill your destiny with a larger plate, such as the deluxe burrito mesquite topped with special sauce, grilled veggies, cheese, peppers, and onions ($12.45) or an order of fan-favorite flautas ($10.25). Mix and match tacos, enchiladas, tostadas, and more across various combos ($8.95–$10.95). Accompany and lubricate your meal with a margarita featuring a potent dash from one of the 107 different tequila varieties, or sample a straight shot as anesthetic for an authentic Civil War–style operation.

El Chico's culinary artists paint their tortilla canvases with melted cheese and spiced meats to curate a menu of fiesta-worthy Mexican feasts. Sizzling fajitas surf in to tables on hot skillets, announcing their arrival with aromatic waves of seared beef, chicken, shrimp, or baby back ribs ($15.99) before lying out to sunbathe on soft flour tortillas. Forks and knives slam against chili relleno enchiladas ($9.99), which burst like savory piñatas with cheese and mushrooms or beef. Chipotle-wine sauce imbues the chicken burrito ($10.49) with an air of sophistication as it commingles with tender spiced chicken, rice, and frijoles rancheros. Boulders of fajita steak and avocado speckle the corn-tortilla landscapes of three tacos ($9.49), and pork-tamale trios ($9.99) unwrap their husks to reveal elaborate cave art scrawled in a thick sauce of chili con carne.
