Photos: Tarasco's New Latin Cuisine, the subject of this week's review

This week's review took me to Tarasco's New Latin Cuisine, a strip-mall spot where the walls are covered with English and Spanish words of wisdom and the menu is a mile long. It took me some time to uncover what was really special about this place, but once I discovered the excellent Michoacan dishes, Tarasco's quickly became one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in the city.

Here, to go with the review, is a side of photos. For more photos of Tarasco's, check out our slide show.

Her toughest assignment had her drinking ten martinis and eating ten Caesar salads over the course of 48 hours. She still drinks martinis, but remains lukewarm on Caesar salads.
