Besso: Eva Longoria's New Tex-Mex Restaurant. Any Comments?

I have seen plenty of media coverage of sexy Eva Longoria's recently-opened Tex-Mex restaurant in the Hollywood area----including views of the food, such as the tacos and goodies that she brought outside to the marauding paparazzi to distract them so that her celeb friends could sneak inside through the back entrance. She says that SoCal didn't serve the kind of Tex-Mex food that her mother made and that she was used to in Texas and thats what she wanted her place to be cooking. I know its only been open for a short time, but has anybody been there? Any comments?

    1. EaterLA has the menu and a quickie review, I think. I don't think I'll be going (except maybe for drinks) because the menu is pretty much 100% meat/fish/chicken.

        1. I was excited about this restaurant opening not so much because of Eva Longoria, but rather because she is collaborating with Todd English on it, and I love his restaurant Olives in Vegas. I haven't been to Beso myself, but I took a look at the citysearch reviews and there are pretty consistently terrible. Oh, well.

          1. I've been trying to get a reservation but they are pulling the whole "one month wait" trick. I'm going to pass for now. There are too many other new places to try.

              One month wait nonsense for a tex mex place? I don't think so.
