Buen Gusto

One of my ongoing dreams for the Richmond restaurant landscape has been the desire for a more upscale Mexican restaurant. There are certainly a few places in town that make a decent mole or tamale, but none treat the genre with the refinement and interest that other cities do. A recent trip to Austin's  Fonda San Miguel  over Thanksgiving, and memories of   Rick Bayless 's Frontera Grill  in Chicago make me yearn for a higher quality experience in Richmond.  With the new Plaza Azteca in Richmond, we've taken a few baby steps, but we still have a long way to go.

Read my take on  Plaza Azteca  in this week's Style Weekly.
