Chef Denisse Lina Chavez has returned to the kitchen of her low-key Prospect Heights restaurant El Atoradero, where she’s turning out some of the city’s best Mexican fare. Check in for a table and then go next door to check out the restaurant’s sibling Madre Mezcaleria, which has a generous selection of mezcal. Once back at El Atoradero, remember to try one of the specials. Robert Sietsema enjoys the albondigas enchipotladas, which are now served on Sundays.
