Estrella Negra's staff stages their twisty takes on traditional Mexican dishes atop glossy, hand-painted tables, all set against a backdrop of original art inspired by or imported from the cuisine's home country. Wheat and spinach tortillas enfold crisp veggies and sizzling proteins for both carnivores and herbivores, doused with house-made salsa and just-made guacamole. Freshly swirled smoothies and scoops of pistachio or mango-bit ice cream cool down tongues hot from spicy tamales and empanadas, and vegetarian visitors will find a wide variety of meatless dishes to savor. Throughout the vibrantly colored dining room, Day of the Dead skeletons peer over tables and cling to walls, plotting to swoop down and snatch tortilla chips when patrons aren't looking.
