Leon Mexican Cuisine isn't just your run-of-the-mill neighborhood Tex-Mex joint. Instead, the eatery's chefs craft contemporary Mexican-inspired cuisine that's rooted in traditional flavors and culinary techniques. For example, using seasonal, locally sourced ingredients whenever possible, the Leon chefs pair skirt steak with a hand-crafted chimichurri sauce, alongside crispy fried plantains and grilled jalapenos.
Meanwhile, for a lighter dish, they char a half-head of cauliflower to a satisfying crunch, drizzling on a spicy pepper puree. The classics are there too—fajitas, tacos, burritos—and, what's more, they're paired with refreshing, hand-mixed margaritas and mojitos.
