At Fonda Isabel Mexican Cuisine & Bar, Chef José Oliver zests fresh ingredients and seasonings into the updated and regional dishes that comprise la comida corrida’s rotating menu. Recent diners have dug into a starter of chalupas poblanos—crisp corn tortillas hefting a heap of salsa, onions, cheese, and sour cream. Entree options have included pan-fried chicken breast lazing with zucchini and oyster mushrooms atop a palanquin of spicy corn chipotle and habañero. Arrachera borracha marinates skirt steak in a mélange of tequila, mint, and jalapeño before dousing the tender meat in the same style of avocado sauce used by Aztec firefighters centuries ago. Diners nibble dulcet desserts such as fried plantains in Fonda Isabel’s dining room, which pops with lime-green walls, vibrant paintings, and white tablecloths with a cultivated taste for crumbs.
