Has the lack of casual, non-chain-y date-night options for Mexican fare and margaritas got you down? Well, there’s a perfectly divine solution in a surprising place: El Dorado Cantina. True, it shares a roof with Sapphire Gentleman’s Club, but what it preaches from the kitchen has made us fall head over stilettos. All ingredients are sourced from sustainable and organic farms (which are listed on the restaurant’s website), and no GMOs are ever used. Aside from all the good-for-you stuff, the tableside guac is rich and delicious, the jalapeño margarita with chunks of pepper is a spice-lover’s dream, and the shrimp taquitos come packed with a whole prawn. Open 24 hours a day, it’s also a spot for lunch, an early breakfast or a late-night snack.
