Tip o' the Cap is a regular feature showcasing the newest capsule reviews. Check back often to see what's opened recently and what's new at some of your old favorites. You can browse more than 380 capsule reviews here.

Señor Pique 14424 Manchester Road, Manchester; 636-394-3455. The strip-mall sprawl of suburban Manchester might not be where you'd expect to find some of the best Mexican food in St. Louis, but Señor Pique makes a convincing claim to the crown. The menu features numerous traditional dishes — simple tacos as flavorful as any from a Cherokee Street taqueria, enchiladas in bittersweet, peppery mole sauce, cochinita pibil (pork tenderloin served wrapped in banana leaves) -- each marked with an M to denote its "authentic Mexican" nature. Those seeking gringo-friendly fare can choose among nachos, fajitas and burritos. And everyone is likely to enjoy a round (or three) of margaritas.

The Skinny:

Hours: 10:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Mon.-Fri., 11:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Sat., 11:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Sun.

Price Range: $$
