Cha Cha’s Latin Kitchen

This cool hang with a wrap-around sidewalk patio is Birch Street Promenade’s most enduring dining success. Helmed by industry vets Don Myers and Peter Serantoni, the menu of modern Mexican fare is enhanced by a wood-burning oven and new dishes that blur some borders—sopes, empanadas, aguachile, and pozole to name a few. Taco Tuesday is one of many weekly specials. Impressive tequila menu. Sunday brunch.
