When the restaurant named after renowed Mexican artist and muralist Rufino Tamayo opened last year, it was billed to be more than just another ritzy Mexican restaurant.

The opening of yet another trendy eatery in Los Angeles may leave some taste buds feeling a bit blase. But when the ritzy new place, bankrolled in part by a major partner in Spago, turns up in East Los Angeles, tongues start wagging.

Conventional wisdom says that L.A. diners like to see and be seen, so you'd think the upstairs seating areas in several bi-level restaurants would be too far from the spotlight to be popular. But it's turning out that the upper levels in some spots are prime territory.
