The Travis Avenue bar and restaurant scene is a favorite hangout for the uptown crowd. From the porch of Mexican kitchen and Tequila Lounge, you can look out on a street lined with fancy cars and beautiful people, or you can look inside at the breezy California-style dining room, rich with dark cherry tables and floors, and white adobe walls. Walk into the bar area and sample any of their 100-plus tequilas-they even have several top shelf tequilas on tap. Have drinks with friends or sit down for a delicious gourmet Tex-Mex meal.Here you can get the most virile tableside guacamole known this side of the Minute Men; a place where haute Mexican regional cooking unfurls in fresh clear flavors, including the prime New York strip ranchero; short ribs braised in cabernet and Mexican chili; and nachos with lobster, black bean puree, avocado and jalapeño jelly. Trece is where good Mexican lives in Dallas. Here"s hoping more follow suit.
