Arco Iris Mexicana (A Mexican Rainbow)

Given that we eat first with our eyes, this menu is planned, not just around the flavors, but also around the colors that are Mexico. Starting with a beautiful avocado green, moving to a pale, shimmering cantaloupe orange, a bold red in the entrée and we finish with a pretty canary yellow. Allow our sommelier to recommend a wine pairing (service available upon request).

Pollo Encacahuatado Rojo (Chicken in Red Peanut Pippian)

nuts or grains. This dish combines raw peanuts, dry-roasted guajillo and arbol chiles and tomatoes, served over poached chicken breast.

Served with frijoles negros de olla (black beans stewed for 24 hours in a clay pot, which imparts a subtle but distinctive flavor)

and
