Crafted from the timeless family recipes of chef Carlos Melendez, Coyote Crossing serves a colorful array of authentic regional Mexican cuisine. Valid during lunch or dinner hours, the five-course meal begins with a heartfelt commencement speech from the waiter and a hearty helping of black-bean or aztec soup—a classic chicken-tortilla soup served with avocado, queso fresco, and guajillo broth. The multipart tongue tango continues with rounds of salads and appetizers, including goat-cheese empanadillas that are sent to tables via trumpet blast from a mariachi horn player. Finally, a main course of poblano-packed pollo enchiladas, coyote veggie burrito, seafood tamale, or exotically spiced puntas chipotle paves the way for a dessert of vanilla flan or tres leches cake.
Coyote Crossing’s large dining room fireplace emits dancing light across the spacious interior, whereas its picturesque outdoor patio boasts wrought-iron tables, burbling fountains, and authentic oxygen molecules imported from Mexico.
Chefs at Coyote Crossing put great care into crafting their authentic Mexican cuisine—for instance, they blend 54 ingredients into a signature mole sauce that takes two days to make. This detail-oriented approach takes them beyond standard tacos to dishes such as chipotle prime beef tips or tampiquena, a thin-cut, grilled steak served with sautéed poblano peppers. Even when the chefs roll everyday burritos, the packages burst with creative ingredients such as pumpkin-flower sauce or tinga-style shredded chicken. The kitchen also highlights fresh seafood in dishes such as Yucatan citrus-marinated grouper and blackened scallops Coyote served with mango-habanero puree.
Crowned by a large faux cactus, Coyote Crossing’s dining room evokes Southwestern style with vivid desert hues, much like Wile E. Coyote's fall fashion line. In cool weather, patrons can warm up at the fireplace indoors; on balmier days, they can retreat to the sunny brick patio, where a stone fountain burbles in the shade of delicate leaves.
