But downtown deserves better. As I've said before, St. Louis needs a restaurateur who's willing to take Mexican food to the next level — to go beyond basic taqueria fare and explore the extraordinary heritage and rich diversity of the nation's cuisine.

While we're at it, what's with the name? "El Borracho" translates as "The Drunk." The menu sidesteps the derogatory connotation by turning the label into a pun, describing the food as "drunk with flavor."

El Borracho aims to combine taqueria fare with Tarantino flair.

If only that comparison applied: Nothing I ordered was remotely drunk with flavor. Not even the margaritas.
