Julio Peraza heads the kitchen at this stylish French-inspired Mexican restaurant from the owners of Proof + Pantry. Poor acoustics make dining there a trial early in its life, and the owners plan to embark on noise mitigation. Peraza’s presentations are beautiful, and a number of his starters are terrific (wild setas, baby corn esquites, pibil rabbit rillettes), but the cooking is too uneven to justify the high prices. Full bar. Leslie Brenner/Guide
