Mexican food is fun food. It's the kind of festive meal where diners dip and dunk and share and pass. Too bad most of it isn't very good, leaving diners to focus more on the margaritas than the masa and mole. Momocho breaks the mold, melding good times with great grub. Chef Eric Williams turns out serious Mexi-fare, food that honors and builds upon a great tradition of South-of-the-Border cuisine. That means making everything from scratch from the very best ingredients, something too many of his competitors can't admit to doing with a straight face.
