Best More Than Mexican Restaurant

Smack in the middle of what may be the hippest little shopping center in South Florida (if we need to tell you the name, you're over), Tipico boasts a menu that says it all: "American Style -- Mexican Flavor -- Spanish Flair," with selections that jitterbug from Mexico to Cuba and on to Kansas City (cheeseburgers, caesar salads?), flaunting a catholic sense of cuisine as confidently as do all the other local Mexican-and-more places. Milton has his version of paradise. This is ours, with a $9.95 chili relleño in place of an apple. The light streams through the lace café curtains onto the polished wooden floor; the white-shirted staff smiles at you with something other than dollars in their eyes. There's hep-cat '80s rock on the sound system, and you're scarfing down a Veracruzana combo (chicken tostada, cheese enchilada, beef taco for $10.95) so spunky and fresh, you'll swear the Central American chef knew you were writing this. Churrasco steaks ($11.95), carnitas ($9.95), arroz con pollo ($9.95), and the wonderful campeche burro ($8.95) are highlights. Open most days from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., the $10-average prices don't make you feel like you're paying by the square foot, but during peak hours (7 to 8 p.m.), you may want to trade in your Navigator for an Escort when wrangling for a parking place (try the street behind the shopping center). Don't be discouraged. La comida es perfecta!

Cuz the Democrats are still learning: I was impressed by Eric Alan Barton's April 1 story, "Prelude to a Butt Whippin'." That took a lot of work. I appreciate all the nice things he said about me, and I look forward to living up to his expectations. Sid Dinerstein, Chairman...

Dubya is still a deceitful chump: Regarding your January 5 cover story by Sam Eifling, "Liar, Liar...," a quick note to inform you that I find your antipatriotic, antimoralistic, and antisocietal message immature and obscene. I laugh at your attempt at "journalism" and suggest growing up. I will shun all...

The times, that is: Hats off to Christopher Smith for the February 19 cover illustration of Courtney Hambright. ("Drunk Side of the Moon") He captured her to a T! Now the question is, does Hambright do her male impersonation at bookings or exclusively at the Downtowner? She has set the...
