They aren’t the trendiest Mexican spots anymore, but we’re still fans of the various Toloache locations around town. They do semi-upscale Mexican food, with things like lobster tacos, steak, various ceviches, and (for some reason) miso black cod. This location on 82nd has a particularly nice backyard, and it works well for an outdoor brunch or a warm-weather date night.
