Prickly pears from cacti turn margaritas a pale pink at this Southwestern restaurant. Decked out in the soft pastel colors of the nation's desert states, this restaurant is located near a movie theater on busy Sunrise Boulevard. Canyon packs in diners in search of contemporary cuisine, which is this restaurant's specialty. Red snapper served with purple Peruvian potatoes is one of many creative options that lure the trendy crowd. Dessert options include a sorbet tangy with the snap of chili peppers.
