Peche-2541.jpgWith the breathless anticipation of the openings of Araña and the John Besh/Aaron Sánchez taqueria Johnny Sánchez, authentic Mexican cuisine is New Orleans' latest dining trend, notes Brett Anderson in his rundown of 11 spots to get great Mexican fare, which includes the expected players like Del Fuego Taqueria and Casa Borrega, as well a few unexpected entries such as Bayona, Emeril's, Pêche Seafood Grill, SoBou, and Square Root. With his list, Anderson answers his own question about the availability of high end Mexican cuisine in the city saying, "you just have to look in restaurants that don't happen to be Mexican." []
