This restaurant serves Mexican food that sets the bar for Mexican food very high. Their mole is the best I've ever tried, and I've had it in Oaxaca, Mexico, which is the birthplace of mole (and going to Autentica doesn't require a plane flight).
Revisited October 2015: We hadn't gone to Autentica for years but returned recently. We started with the house margaritas and the ceviche of the day (salmon!) which was amazing. Mark had braised lamb with white beans. The lamb was very tender and the beans were infused with saffron. I had the Platilla Mexicana which was huge, with two chicken enchiladas- each with their own mole, and the best chile relleno I have ever eaten. If you haven't visited Autentica for a while it's time to go back! We will.
