2014 Winner: Tenoch Mexican

On most Mexican menus, burritos and tacos hog the spotlight while tortas, complicated sandwiches served on crusty telera rolls, lurk meekly in the corner. Tenoch pushes its tortas to center stage, where they absolutely shine. Layered with smoky-hot chipotle mayo, pickled onions, avocado and melty queso Oaxaca, any of Tenoch’s meat options are terrific, but the standout is the campechana, a hefty combination of carnitas (braised, crisped pork shoulder), chorizo and beans. You may never bother with a burrito again.
