José, on the edge of Bluffview, is the spot for an upscale meal that goes hard on Jalisco-style dishes and seafood. The space is big and airy, so post up at one of the corner tables to count the ladies with big hair and designer purses as you enjoy an excellent smoky negroni a la Mexicana. Kick your meal off with the crab sopesitos, tiny bites that feel like the fancy version of the after school snacks you’d pop into your mouth while glued to the TV as a kid. Their cauliflower salad has a great tamarind vinaigrette, and the coconut ceviche is sweet and cool, thanks to coconut milk and mangos.
