SECOND WARDChronicle restaurant reviewer Alison Cook's dish of the week is brisket flautas at the newly opened El Tiempo. She writes that "the El Tiempo brisket flauta filling is so lively and chile-fied that I ate the whole long, elegant flauta in one semi-breathless sequence, without pausing once for a remedial dose of salsa or anything else.
