Frost chef Leonard Anderson teamed up with spouse Ashleigh Newman and buddy Ryan Huseby to remake a down-on-its-luck Mexican restaurant. Leonard’s modern but approachable (and democratically priced) cooking is a revelation, from a stellar cheeseburger to chermoula-scented steamed mussels. “The neighborhood is going through a renaissance,” said Anderson. “We want to be a part of that.”
