You’re looking for a scene, but not so much of a scene that you want to go home early for a long bath and a box of Breyer’s. Just head to Toca Madera. The organic/healthy/lettuce-cups-are-king Mexican restaurant on 3rd Street is certainly a scene, but has maintained one thing all along - decent enough food. The space itself is beautiful, you might see Channing Tatum, and the tequila situation is strong. Whatever you do, save room for the churro ice cream sandwich.
