LA Weekly's Description

Is it possible that owners Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, who worked the marriage of Mexican cuisine and New American grill cooking a full decade before the guys who are thought of as pioneers, just opened a new Border Grill? They did - a thorough revamping of their old Ciudad space downtown, new Huntley-Muir murals on the Easter-marshmallow walls, and the old pan-Latin menu swapped out for the grilled-tongue tacos, green-corn tamales and sizzling panuchos familiar from the Santa Monica restaurant. There is no shortage of high-end Mexican restaurants downtown now, from the evolved alta cocina of Rivera to Casa's louche take on the cuisine, but Border Grill's roasted-plantain empanadas, potato rajas tacos, long-braised carnitas and pan-seared halibut crusted with pumpkin seeds are still worth a visit. Goat-milk flan for dessert.
