If someone tasked us with creating our ideal summer lunch spot, it would look a lot like Za Za Zá, from the same team as LA Cha Cha Chá and another recent Hit List addition, Loreto. You'll find the order-at-the-counter mariscos spot in Loreto's tree-filled Frogtown courtyard that feels like a designated pocket park. The daytime-only menu has 10-or-so items that are exactly what you want to be eating when the marine layer burns off and suddenly, you're sweating a little. Think dishes like tostadas layered with yellowtail and tobiko mayo, calamari-topped guacamole, and gooey, griddled Oaxacan cheese tacos. There’s also a full drink menu with agua frescas, micheladas, and boozy punches—which you’re obviously dabbling in, it’s summer and you just turned off Slack notifications.

There's never been a restaurant in Frogtown quite like Loreto. Head to this upscale Mexican seafood spot when you're in the mood for a big night out.

Ditroit is an excellent Mexican spot in the Arts District, and the more casual sibling restaurant to Damian.
