"Tamayo is located in one of the city's oldest buildings. It is named after famed Mexican artist Rufino Tamayo and is decorated with large mosaic murals inspired by his work. But the real artistry comes from chef Richard Sandoval's kitchen. Sandoval grew up in his family's restaurants in Acapulco and, after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America, he was determined to open a Mexican restaurant that went beyond burritos...Tamayo has a nice wine list but an even more impressive selection of more than 100 tequilas. Request a table on the rooftop patio to enjoy a sweeping panorama of the Rocky Mountains with your dinner. Service is brisk but helpful and good suggestions are offered about pairing dishes with the specialty tequila drinks."  --Westword

"Denver deserves an upscale Mexican restaurant, and here it is. Nationally renowned owner Richard Sandoval grew up working in his family's Acapulco restaurants, and in this richly decorated space, he marries traditional foods with contemporary techniques and ingredients. The soups are superb, the appetizer menu makes for perfect grazing when paired with the extensive tequila roster, and the desserts are unique. There isn't a more authentic mole in town, either."  --Denver Post
