A Visual Tour of Tintorera, Maycoll Calderón's Modern Mexican Restaurant in Silver Lake

On first glance, it's impossible not to be romanced by Tintorera. The first U.S. venture for chef Maycoll Calderón of Mexico City's Huset — and the latest in a string of modern Mexican openings (Tallula's, Verlaine, Maestro) — is truly transportive. You step off of Sunset into an aquamarine-lacquered entryway flush with flora, then descend a few steps to a breezy open-air dining room. Palm trees line the patio. The buttery glow from strung bulbs and hanging wicker orbs instantly makes you feel a couple of points more attractive. If you're a born cynic, you want to be mad at the mismatched wooden chairs for their obvious charm, or to roll your eyes at the mural of the mermaid/sea warrior with a blue shark (the titular "tintorera") shooting out of its breast. But it's dead cool. Read L.A. Weekly's review.
