Chef Gualberto Ramirez pairs time-tested Mexican flavors with locally sourced produce, meats, and seafood to fashion a menu of south-of-the-border specialties. Chipotle beer batter sheathes the aguacate frito’s avocado wedges before a crispy shell ensconces their enticing variety of textures and spices ($7.95). Served Puebla-style over chicken, the pechugas poblana ($17.95) merges Mexican chocolate, chilies, and nuts with a sumptuous mole sauce to bait stubborn sweet teeth into broadening their horizons. The fillet sonorense, an impeccably grilled 8-ounce beef tenderloin, crowns itself with an ancho chili stuffed with creamy goat cheese ($24.95), and the fire-roasted chilies rellenos crushes herbivorous cravings with its fresh medley of vegetables, cheese, and black beans ($14.95). Sides of corn, potatoes, and beans accompany most meals, preluding palates for homemade flans, chocolate tamales, and deep-fried receipts.

Acitrón Cocina Mexicana

At Acitrón, chefs elevate traditional Mexican mainstays to bistro-level sophistication. Like the world’s most edible bionic man, each dish is assembled by a crack team using locally sourced produce, meats, and seafood, with menu items including tilapia fish tacos and the crepas de rajas poblanas stuffed with grilled poblano strips, corn kernels, yellow squash, zucchini, and sour cream. Meals unfold in a dining room decked with hardwood floors, floral artwork, and sparkling granite tables topped with flickering candles. Shielded by a basket of fresh limes, a full bar slings libations including margaritas, specialty cocktails, and tequila drinks. Acitrón’s scratch-made desserts also add sweet punctuation to meals with bites including flan, tres leches, and chocolate tamales topped with Mexican-vanilla ice cream.

Customer Reviews

Nice service and delicious food and drinks!
Sarah M. · January 12, 2014
Enjoyed the dish I had but all dishes seem to be meat with some type of creamy sauce. All well prepared, I loved my dish and will be back... However, some of those in the party had a difficult time finding something they wanted, and a few said 'it all seems very similar'. While I disagree, I can see their point and thought I'd pass it along.
