Tex-Mex from English pubbers

While no one except Stripes-era Bill Murray will ever know why the chicken really crossed the road, we do know that the owner of Addison's Lion and Crown crossed it to get back to her roots, by opening Kahlo Contemporary Mexican Cuisine right across the... street.Graced with a patio and a 20ft stone-topped wood bar, the place has nothing to do with Frida, though the walls are covered with abstract paintings from the daughter's boyfriend. Rather, it's about classics from empanadas and gorditas, to ceviche and the shrimp & garlic gambas al ajillo, which won't be at all offended when you say "nice gams!". Step up your game with grilled chicken over tequila-butter smashed potatoes, tequila-treated tilapia, fire-seared fajitas, and chimichurri-sauced carne asada served with Mexico City rice, a spring-break nickname the former secretary of state got for having lots of "foreign relations".Boozing comes by way of a margarita quintet, as well as Estrella, Suprema, Tecate and Indio. Weekend breakfast counts chilaquiles, breakfast tacos, and huevos divorciados, or what happens when your male-chicken gets busted crossing the road.
