Review Preview: "¡Uno, Dos, Tres!"


In this week's review, I visit three recently opened Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants: Taqueria La Monarca, Amigo Joe's and Latitude 26°.
Taqueria la Monarca is the latest addition to the unlikely Murderers' Row of restaurants at the intersection of Olive Boulevard and Woodson Road. Across Woodson from the three-month-old taqueria is Jeffrey Plaza, home to Nobu's, De Palm Tree, Indian Food and Pho Long -- each among the top examples of their representative cuisines. Taqueria la Monarca fits neatly into this lineup, the number-two hitter lining singles to the outfield gaps, setting the table for the heavy hitters.
Check the RFT restaurant page tomorrow afternoon or here Wednesday morning to see what I think.
