Modern Mexican cuisine awaits at Lupita, an almost religious experience with its giant image of the Virgin of Guadalupe (hence the name) overlooking the bar. This dinner-only restaurant has nine kinds of guacamole, various combination platters, and delicious gourmet tacos and quesadillas. Desserts are a riot of creativity from pastries mixing peaches and corn to chocolate flan with banana topping. At night, the restaurant’s two levels are lit throughout by candles. The menu of alcoholic drinks comes on a board with crazy decorations glued all over it – more Virgins and plastic Day of the Dead skeletons and tiny sombreros – and it lists the enormous tequila collection, among other liquors. Owner Diego Sicoli has worked at nearby Novecento and uses his skills to great effect here.
