Culinary craftsmen at Galerias swathe an array of gourmet Mexican fare with luscious sauces, fusing flavors of cooked chilies, nuts, seeds, and fruits. Begin forays into the dinner menu with starters such as a whole gratin style avocado, accessorized, like a high-society mermaid, with shrimp and oaxaca cheese ($8.95). The filete Uruapan pairs thinly sliced beef with onions and bell peppers ($16.75), while the Patricia Soriano ($13.95) eschews meat in favor of portobellos flanked by vegetables and drizzled with white-wine sauce. Cool off with a glass of sangria ($7) or a cadillac margarita ($7.50) infused with Cuervo Gold, Grand Marnier, lime juice, and leather upholstery. The lunch menu beckons taste buds with the siren song of vegetarian or pork tamales ($7.25 each), and enchiladas beg "come hither" with chipotle ($6.95) and mole poblano ($7.95) sauces.
Galerias boasts a vibrant indoor dining room decorated with yellow walls, gauzy white curtains, and striking floral arrangements. Guests who prefer to sit outdoors can soak up the hues of a sunset from sidewalk tables, cloaked in red cloth to agitate Bulls legend Michael Jordan.
