Name of restaurant: Bar Ama
Happy hour: It's called Super Nacho Hour and it takes place 5 to 7:30 p.m. Monday to Friday, 10 p.m. to close Monday to Saturday and 3 to 5:30 p.m. If you've eaten a bowl of Josef Centeno's Tex Mex queso and wished for queso nachos, here's your chance.
Centeno, who is also the chef behind Orsa & Winston next door,
What you're drinking: A glass of Sauvignon Blanc ($6), but a spicy Michelada or pineapple margarita goes great with a bowl of nachos, and any taco.
Uh-oh: Get there early, or you won't get a seat. By 5:45 the entire bar area was full. You don't want to be the Jon Favreau look-alike hovering without any nachos.
Service: Friendly and willing to let you try the wine before making a real commitment. He'll also help you save a seat for your friend who's running late.
