Go to Brazil. (old town) Go directly to restaurant Brazil, do not pass go and eat all you want for $15. THIS IS GREAT! They sit you down, there is no menu, but you will have some of the best tasting filet mignon, shrimp, turkey, chicken, etc., etc., in your life! (15 courses, all you want of each) We were brought by a friend here last year, and it was the BEST! They bring all of the food around on big swords, and cut it off at your table, and they don't stop. They just keep bringing it around, salads, sides, etc. The meats are done on a rotissere/fire pit in the front, and I can't say enough great things about it. It's not hyped alot because there is a crowd everynight. Word of mouth advertising is all they need. Don't miss this secret. :-) Mickey's Chicago pub if you want some good deep dish pizza too.

Margaritas on Basilio Badillo has excellent food. Chile rellenos, cream of poblano soup, just to name a couple. Excellent authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices and friendly service.

Rumor has it Cafe de Olla is closed, for an indeterminate period of time. So scratch that one from my list posted above!

Los Pibes now has a sign on their door saying they will return in October. I guess the restaurant is just closed until the high season starts. On another note, I believe that the restaurant is also up for sale. If you go there and really like the food, why not just buy the whole restaurant :-)
