Cocina Poblana

Inspired by his parents’ tradition of handmade Puebla and Jalisco dishes, Chef Lito Saldaña created a menu that showcases Puebla’s complex and French-inspired moles juxtaposed with Jalisco’s rich-and-spicy roasted pork and carnitas. While seated in the spacious, colorful dining area, diners can wrap handmade corn tortillas around four types of mole, tasting the subtle difference between Lito’s mother Luisa’s and grandmother Elena’s recipes. To sample Lito’s father’s traditional Jalisco recipes, guests can nosh on the carnitas Don Pedro, a plate of roasted pulled pork served with beans and fresh guacamole.
