Tastes of Mexico

February 11, 2017, 7:00 pm

When the weather is cold, we think about warmer climates and food. Kicking off 2017 with a favorite country cuisine that we have explored before but with so much variety we are more than happy to head down south again for another Tastes of Mexico.

Our multi-course tasting menu will again attempt to explore and capture aspects of the complex nature of this cuisine while staying true to our view that we will never be authentic but its ok to be tourists and fans.
