Mexican restaurant in Old Lake Highlands comes from a well-versed vet: John McBride, great-grandson of Mike Martinez, who co-founded the El Fenix chain. It's a neighborhood spot whose menu is mostly Tex-Mex, with margaritas and a full bar; but a special section on the menu was inspired by Rosa Mexicano, the famed upscale Mexican restaurant in New York.
