Omnivore - New Mexican spot on Highland Avenue

Across the Street (668 Highland Ave., 404-781-0931) is a new Mexican restaurant in the former Roman Lily location. We dined there a few nights ago, on its second or third day open. For now, the restaurant is serving an abbreviated menu. Although we encountered the usual opening glitches, the service was great. I'll be writing more about the food in next week's paper, although we'll wait for the full menu before doing a serious review.

Vegetarians will be happy to learn that several meatless entrees are on the menu, including fajitas and enchiladas. A staff member told us the complete menu will include even more vegetarian choices.

At right is Wayne carefully deseeding the fiery chile that was in his margarita. It burned his poor pitiful mouth.
