Famous from their cable television cooking show, "Two Hot Tamales," and their appearance on Julia Child's "Cooking With Master Chefs," Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger of Santa Monica's Border Grill have created Ciudad in downtown Los Angeles. The name is Spanish for city and the restaurant explores the cuisines of Mexico City, Lima, Barcelona and Buenos Aires. The atmosphere here is playfully campy with a '50s-inspired design. Specialties include the Argentine Rib Eye and a Cuban-style Grilled Chicken, served with fried plantains and yucca. Wines from Spain, Chile, Argentina, Portugal and California are featured, as are authentic, dreamy desserts.
