A smart, yet warm space on one of the city’s most attractive residential streets is home to Merotoro, chef Jair Téllez’s paean to the surf and turf delights that constitute Baja California cuisine. The proceedings are warm and easygoing even as the menu steers diners toward less conventional selections, on a revised-daily bill of fare, divided into four courses (sharing absolutely allowed) that insist on organic, hormone-free, and as local as possible. Seasonal vegetables and Mexico-only herbs are always part of the offering, and yummies like aguachile seafood cocktails, grilled shellfish, a bone-marrow risotto, and a signature, fall-off-the-bone pork jaw, are big hits whenever they turn up on the menu.
