The Short Or­der

The vaguely cos­mopoli­tan L.A. vibe of Eloisa seems ap­pro­pri­ate, given that chef John Rivera Sed­lar opened the restau­rant in the new Drury Plaza Ho­tel to her­ald his re­turn from the City of An­gels to the City Dif­fer­ent. Sed­lar pays homage to his North­ern New Mex­ico roots by in­clud­ing tra­di­tional dishes that are given a cre­ative per­sonal spin. The bar team cre­ates some of the finest cock­tails in New Mex­ico. Ser­vice is cor­dial and ex­ceed­ingly pro­fes­sional but can be ne­glect­ful, but those hic­cups aside, this is the real thing. Rec­om­mended: Don Aji and Fresa cock­tails, chile pri­mav­era, pas­trami tacos, maize budino, potato-wrapped scal­lops, duck en­fri­jo­lada, carne adovada,

Frito pie, and biz­co­chi­tos.
