Mexican: Tamayo is one of the most popular restaurants on historic Larimer Square with good reason. Richard Sandoval, of Zengo and La Biblioteca fame, has created a posh, airy space in which Mexican is reimagined as an artful, surprising cuisine yet true to its roots. Among the starters are a wild-mushroom flatbread with goat cheese, black-bean puree, caramelized onion and truffle oil, and a chile-encrusted calamari served with Napa cabbage salad and a chipotle-blood-orange reduction. Tampiquena is one of the chef's specials, a dish featuring filet mignon and served with poblano-chile potato gratin, mole-cheese enchilada, cactus salad and guacamole. A variety of tacos and enchiladas round out the menu, some with surprising fillings such as lamb belly or crispy tofu. Don't skimp on the delectable sides here, especially the caramelized plantains with chipotle butter.
