I posted my first thoughts on El Rey Mexican Restaurant back in November 2010, not too long after it first opened. This funky little Stephen Starr restaurant – located in a former diner that had been good for little but sobering up after a late night of drinking – remains one of my favorite lunch spots in the city today. I seem to always end up here once every couple weeks when in town, craving their creative and tasty food. And killer margaritas.

I believe in enjoying life - and that includes enjoying as many different kinds and styles of food as possible. I am an omnivore with a personal passion for small, sustainable, ethical farming and natural foods. I have little patience for the "Food Police" or those who advocate that one dietary plan is the only "right" one for everyone. Find your personal balance and conscience; make food a joy in your life - that's my motto.
