Owned by the same folks who made Doña Tomás a success, Tacubaya brings the authentic taqueria experience to yupscale Fourth Street. Well, not quite authentic theres no grease on the tables, and the plates are too pretty (and pricey). The chefs subtlety is lost on the tacos and tortas, which could pack more heat. But as dishes such as kabocha squash tamales with salsa rojo and and feather-light chile relleno demonstrate, the more showy Tacubayas food gets, the better it is.
