I think it must be a sign of the economic times that every foodie in the city seems to have made a beeline for the inexpensive, new Bone Garden Cantina (1425 Ellsworth Industrial Blvd., 404-418-9072). Located in the Westside, not far from Taqueria del Sol, Bone Garden has been opened by the same people who operate the Vortex restaurants.
The best thing about the place is its decor. The theme is taken from the Mexican Day of the Dead. If you're not familiar with the holiday, think of a campy treatment of death (or rent the video Under the Volcano, which is set during Day of the Dead).
The food is pretty hit or miss. A "white" pozole has drawn raves from other diners, but I found it almost too salty to eat. This was probably a fluke; consistency is always a problem with a new restaurant. So far, my favorite dish has been the chicken mole. It's a very rich mole with lots of playful flavors, garnished with toasted pumpkin seeds.
There's a variety of enchiladas, tacos, burritos and sopes. Among the fillings, I've so far liked the barbacoa and brisket best.
