The Short Order

La Fi­esta Lounge at La Fonda is a ven­er­a­ble spot for danc­ing (honky­tonk trea­sure Bill Hearne and his band play there twice a week) and peo­ple­watch­ing. This spring, the lounge re­opened with a new menu and a sleeker but blander look, which has caused much con­tro­versy in the pages of this news­pa­per, with let­ter-writ­ers and op-eds ex­press­ing worry for the soul of this his­toric bar. How­ever, the more things change, the more they stay the same — the food, never any great shakes be­fore the re­model, is as unin­spir­ing as it ever was, but the lo­cal color is still en­ter­tain­ing. Rec­om­mended: tres leches cake, tequila smash.
