Part Mexican restaurant, part multi-floor labyrinth, Mírate is a deceptively huge dinner spot in Los Feliz from the people behind Beverly Hills' Mírame. The three-story space has more loungey spaces than we can keep track of, making it ideal for big groups or hiding from someone. There's an indoor bar area, an open-air courtyard, and even a top-floor terrace that overlooks the tall tree piercing the building's center. It's all very impressive, but it's the food and cocktails we're most excited about. Meant to be Mírame's more casual sibling, Mírate still has plenty of flair, as seen in the gorgeous jicama aguachile swimming in a bright red jamaica broth with gooseberries. We're big fans of the crackly lamb flautas with feta and roasted eggplant, the smoky octopus taco arabe with chorizo and crispy chicharron, and pretty much any drink that comes from the bar—especially the floral bacanora sour or the caramely cold brew-spiked carajillo, which goes well with their corn churros.
