afé Sol Azteca is the ultimate definition of a hole in the wall. The only indication that this restaurant exists is a sign that lures potential customers to enter what appears to be a vacant alleyway. But this hole in the wall leads straight to Mexico, with not only great food but Mexican artwork hanging from exposed brick inside, an open-air patio outside, brightly colored murals, and creative cocktails you don’t usually find in the suburbs. The menu boasts classic dishes with hearty, spicy flavors. We’re glad this place is so hard to find. If it wasn’t, we’re sure we’d have to wait in line. Penzias
