Located in the old Pujol space, Ticuchi is a flat-out gorgeous restaurant. The place is dark, as in very dark, and while that might make the experience feel sexy and mysterious, the real appeal here is the food. With a heavily vegetarian focus, corn is the star (the women making fresh tortillas in the front kitchen might clue you in). The menu changes often but consistently includes impressive small plates like their staple and outstanding tamal de esquite.
