#1687 #S1003 - Fonda La Catrina, Seattle, WA - 2/22/2012

I don't know anything about the folk art or the name, so I will simply quote The Stranger: "In Latin folklore, Catrina is a skeletal dame who represents the equalizing concept of death when it comes to the rich and poor. In lieu of revoluciĆ³n, Fonda La Catrina seeks to bridge the class divide with affordable Mexican and a classy interior featuring the drawings of legendary political cartoonist Jose Guadalupe Posada."  What I do know is that this is some of the better tasting Mexican food in the area -- and more authentic, I am informed -- along with some pretty fine margaritas.  And the bartender, server, and owner all took care to explore my tastes and offer alternatives.  It's a very nice addition to the Georgetown area.
