La Ventana and a Second Meso Maya are Now Open Downtown (Photos)

There are only a tight handful of restaurants in Dallas that offer serious upscale Mex-Mex. Meso Maya is one of them, and now, luckily for us, there are two locations to choose from. But there's even more good news. In the latest expansion from Firebird Restaurant Group (the group that also owns El Fenix), Chef Nico Sanchez has created a new concept, La Ventana (Spanish for The Window, appropriately). And La Ventana sits adjacent to Meso Maya II, on McKinney right near the new Perot Museum.
