Petite León wears a lot of hats—it’s laid-back enough to be a comfortable neighborhood spot, but it will impress your date with fine dining flourishes like leather banquettes and top-notch service.

The food draws inspiration from the cuisine of the Yucatán, where the chef grew up, and also incorporates flavors and preparations from around the world, with dishes like steak tartare with smoked queso fresco and Yucatán spiced chicken with piri-piri sauce. You’ll see a similar theme on the cocktail menu—there’s an Oaxacan Old Fashioned made with mezcal and chocolate bitters. The cheeseburger is a particular standout, which comes loaded with caramelized onions and pickles, and the tarta de queso, a Basque-style cheesecake served with a sesame-vanilla crumble, is a mandatory dessert.
