Pilsen Yards may be the antidote to a year of holing up alone. DJs deliver vinyl sets of vintage Funk, World, Soul, Cumbia, Salsa, R&B and Fusion. As the pandemic softens its grip, expect live music and art shows, too. It's spacious and playful. The menu might read familiar, tacos, ceviche, hummus, burger, nachos, steak and fries, but look a little closer and you'll notice some clever swings on the same old. Shrimp tacos excite with chorizo, potatoes, chipotle aioli and cibollitas along with the crustaceans. Veg gets an upgrade: carrots al pastor are charred carrots and pineapple, dappled with cilantro pesto and lime crema. Masa encases ricotta and is draped with poblano cream sauce for yummy meat-free tamales. Order one of the ceviches when it's sweaty or the steamy pozole when it's chilly. But whatever the weather, get a seat on the patio, it has a radiant-heated cement floor, radiant overhead heaters, and a clear roof to let the sunshine in.
