This “Mexican steakhouse” plays by its own rules. Here, traditional cuts are available, but most of the menu is devoted to house specialties, from a bright tilapia ceviche with housemade chips to arrachera a la cerveza, a beer-marinated skirt steak served over smooth avocado-tomatillo salsa. Revolución is as fun a place to drink as to eat, especially with oversize margaritas and surprisingly good cocktails, like the smoky Oaxacan Manhattan.
