La Urbana

San Francisco, California

Swapping a homey plant store for La Urbana, a chic new restaurant adorned in of-the-moment charcoal grays and oranges, with entrées starting at $19, does bring a bit of glitz to the hood. But the modern Mexican cuisine is more than trendy—it’s ambitious and worth exploring: The quesa­dillas are made with manchego, the halibut fillet comes with the Aztec delicacy huitlacoche and cauliflower purée, and the margaritas are rimmed with housemade bacon salt. Maybe diversity does still have a place on Divisadero Street.
