  1. Strada - very good Italian.

    Mamacitas Baja Kitchen - new sit-down casual Mexican in former Mo-Daddy's space. We went last night. Complimentary chips and salsa...salsa needed some heat and salt, chips were from a bag and not fresh. Pork tamale app was good. Chile relleno dinner was pretty good and I really liked the quinoa salad and two sauces it was served with. Lobster enchilada dinner was way too spicy - I like heat but it really detracted from the sweetness of the lobster. Margaritas were strong and fresh but small so for $10 it wouldn't be my first choice. Service was excellent at the bar. Total bill with tip for 2 margs, 2 beers, 1 app and 2 entrees was $80. It was pretty good but I'd choose Limones over it every time.
