    Panchita's #3. Although it's more refined Mexican/Salvadorean than nuevo.

    Here's a recent report:

        I second Panchita's #3. The chicken mole is my favorite, with a couple of pupusas for appetizers.

        I also really like Charanga, which is sort of cuban tapas.


        And Platanos is also really good (particularly for brunch imo):


        I thought of another one (I think I'm going to go there for lunch today actually!): Fresca, which is actually in Noe Valley on 24th street, but close to the Mission. They have great ceviches--try the ceviche sample platter, you get three of them.

        Also, I would steer away from Limon, I think it is generally overrated and overpriced.

          thanks, folks. Fresca is new to me, sounds intriguing.
