Las Fuentes

 

continued

The setting is a huge, festively decorated L-shaped room in Chelsea's Clocktower Commons. Adobe walls are adorned with colorful murals, including one of a lady kneading dough who seems ridiculously overjoyed that a man is presenting her with a pink shawl. Bright green and red lamps hang over tables between high-backed booths. The sparkling long bar is a perfect spot for sampling Mexican beers. Picture windows frame an actual fountain in a courtyard-appropriately, since the place is called Las Fuentes ("The Fountains").

Act 1 takes place a few weeks after its June opening, on one of the evenings of Sounds & Sights on Thursday Nights. The restaurant is bustling with the feel of a party to which everyone's welcome. It's run by the Aguirre family, who operate La Fuente in Ypsilanti (confusingly, a singular "fountain").

The menu is astounding in its range and diversity. It includes familiar fare such as tacos, burritos, and enchiladas but also some authentic dishes rarely seen in these parts.
