At Broken Spanish, chef Ray Garcia combines classic, home-cooking Mexican cuisine with seasonal California spirit in dishes like lamb neck tamales, oxtail quesadilla with plantains or hearty chicharron with elephant garlic sauce. Lively crowds flock to this DTLA gem -- with a colorful, multi-room interior (in the former Rivera space) dotted with greenery and woody art pieces -- for dinner and selections off the eclectic wine and inspired cocktail lists, the artful cocktails often showcasing tequila and mezcal.
