Now Open: El Hefe Super Macho Taqueria
The "super macho taqueria," run by restaurant veterans Jon Wright of The Lodge and Ryan Hibbert and Mike Troyan of American Junkie, dishes up Mexican-style street food including duck carnitas, braised beef cheek and pork al pastor mini-tacos ($3-4 apiece), tortas, salads, and appetizers such as queso fundido ($8) and pork belly empanadas ($5). "We wanted to do something that combined the vibe of American Junkie with great food like at The Lodge," says Wright.
Though there's no Sasquatch Burger on the menu, hungry diners can feast on the aptly named Hefe Dog, a massive Kobe-style beef hot dog wrapped in crisp bacon and smothered with charro beans, avocado, green chile salsa and mustard.

El Hefe's decor is a mix of eclectic Latino elements -- a Virgin of Guadalupe statue, a lucha libre mural, classic tattoo art -- and modern, urban decorations like the skateboard deck lights that hide sockets for recharging your iPhone or other boy toys.
