Noticed/drove by it yesterday. Anybody been? Pros/Cons. Worth a try?

    It's open!!!! HURRAH!!! :)

    If it's like the one at Mercado la Paloma... it's a true 100% yucatecan Menu. To start, get a Panucho. Then as main, get a Cochinita Pibil or Poc Choc. Then to end get the bananas... :) And you will be one happy hound!! :)

      Saw the menu from La Paloma website, looks very basic for an upscale looking "storefront" (6th St.) I wonder if they're going to expand on their menu.

          I live in the building where the new Chichen Itza is. They are NOT open yet. I don't know when they are going to open. From the looks of things, it will probably be a couple weeks.
