This Clinton Hill Mexican pours on the best mole poblano in the city: dense and subtle, with strong cinnamon notes and a lingering afterburn. Have it over chicken, and you'll be dipping your tortillas in the sesame-seed-strewn sauce long after the bird has vanished. For vegetarians, the cheese-stuffed chiles relleno are the best bet, made with fresh, dark-green peppers dipped in egg batter and coated with a salsa of fresh tomatoes. Push through the door marked Men and be surprised by a room filled with pool tables, the perfect antidote for the after-dinner blahs.
