Playa on Beverly
Tried the entire menu, dish for dish, drink for drink (cocktails), including the desserts. Overall, the food was pretty good, as were the cocktails. My 2 fav dishes of the night: ensalada flan de elote and flora y terra (dessert). Check out kevineats for an extensive and detailed review. I'd say playa is worth checking out at least once.
