Everyone who toils in the minors dreams of one day stepping it up to star in the majors, exactly like Mariners draft pick
Tim Lincecum who thrilled Seattle fans by winning two Cy Young Awards, sigh, Brandon Morrow. For a restaurant stepping up to the bigtime: Tenoch Mexican Grill.
Already running a more low-key, lunch-only burrito spot Downtown, the woman behind it upped the ante with TMG, a more upscale tile-floored, sky blue archway'd sit down Mexstaurant featuring mostly family recipes given an occasional playful twist, inspired by a recent trip to Puerto Vallarta, just like your "must be 5 o'clock somewhere" tramp stamp. The comida starts with entrees ranging from the garlic/guajillo pod flakes/soy/lime juice Salmon in a Skillet, to the Asada a la Tampiquena (marinated rib eye w/ two enchiladas & roasted Poblano peppers), to the tomatillos, jalapenos, cilantro & garlic sauce Pollo en Mole Verde, which is way more flavorful than the Pollo en Mole-skine. There's also antojitos like crispy tortilla Flautas filled w/ beef or chicken & sour cream, and Enchiladas Verdes stuffed w/ chicken and topped w/ green salsa, as well as Queso en Salsa Ranchera w/ sliced Gouda partially melted in salsa, and a raw tilapia Ceviche Cocktail with Serrano pepper that adds spice/an inability to hit curveballs.
Right now Tenoch's dinner only but they'll be serving burritos and tacos for lunch soon; plus to wash it all down they're serving Mexican brews (Dos Equis, Negra Modelo), and margs like the Sauza-based House or the Sandbornes which adds Cointreau and a float of Grand Marnier, which totally would've been Lincecum's awesome nickname if only... (deep breath)... nevermind.
