El Bolero is the first Mexican restaurant by the Apheleia Group, and in true Apheleia fashion they’ve decked out this Design District dining room. Patterned tile covers the floors, while subway tile seamlessly flows into mosaics on a far wall. Tile frames the kitchen, which glows like it's under a heat lamp, and it frames the bar in green, where tufted leather barstools sprout like yellow buttercups. There’s a patio, too.
The menu offers a collection of Mexican dishes you’ll find at most restaurants that timidly try to push Tex-Mex to the wayside. There are plenty of fajitas and enchiladas, with moles, steaks and whole fish for those who want to branch out. Just don’t expect to get too far out there. El Bolero is another Dallas restaurant that likes to play it safe.
