La Bodega Negra review… a Mexican restaurant with a unique twist

Recently I visited La Bodega Negra (LBN) for dinner and drinks on a Saturday night. I had a such a great time that I thought I’d share it because it’s a great destination for dinner and a night out with friends. LBN is a Mexican restaurant and bar with a twist.
