Chef Enrique Olvera may just be the biggest name in Mexican cuisine, which means that his new coastal restaurant at the Cape Hotel is a must-hit for any foodie. In a vast, dark space dotted with copper highlights and huge floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking a renowned point break, he’s serving up a comforting, homey brand of Mexican with a Japanese Izakaya–meets-surfer bent—think miso fish tacos, steak tacos dipped in oyster sauce, grilled avocados, cactus and purslane salad, the list goes on. Even the waiters’ outfits are a clever mix of traditions: elegant black guayaberas (A coastal Mexican style of linen shirt), baggy trousers and black skater shoes.
