Where can you get gooey queso dip, the most decadent Frito pie ever, mole eggplant and lubina crudo with tomatillo and apple all in the one place? Bar Amá, chef Josef Centeno’s love letter to the Tex-Mex food of his youth, with a hearty dash of modern LA thrown in for good measure. The bar snakes along the side of the vibrant room, and is one of the most convivial spots in town to eat dinner. Doesn’t hurt that there’s a serious tequila and mezcal selection behind it.
