|dining room and bar at Playa in Mill Valley, California|
In a thoroughly contemporary setting, with dangling golden light orbs and a full bar, bustling Playa serves up some delicious and colorfully-presented fare--watermelon salad, a brilliant Tijuana Caesar salad, enchiladas de mole rojo. Traditional tacos, tamales, and quesadillas sometimes are filled with the unusual, think octopus. My dining partner and I sat outside on the back patio, where the tables resembled shiny hatch covers and where we were warmed by a fire pit and overhead lamps, and made a nice light dinner of guacamole, grilled asparagus, and traditional house margaritas. Intriguing dishes I will return to try: vegan soup menudo style, an empanada with chimichurri, and vegetarian asparagus tacos.
