Lorenzo’s Italian Restaurant's culinary whizzes craft a menu of family-style Italian fare from traditional and progressive, fusion-inspired recipes. Old World Italy and New Mexico seductively tango like mismatched police partners throughout the grilled chicken fettuccini Alfanso, festooned with sausage and green chili ($14.25 for full order). A dozen dynamite pasta preparations grace the dinner menu, as well as grilled rib-eye steak, served with mushrooms sautéed in merlot and a side of fettuccine alfredo ($23.25). Lunchtime yields a crew of 18 pizzas (starting at $11) to satiate stomachs, and half-portion lobster ravioli ($11.50) with lemon and butter sauce tickles tinier appetites. Lips sip on one of seven Italian sodas ($2.50), supplemented with whipped cream to mimic the experience of drinking a carbonated cloud.
The chefs at Mesilla Valley Kitchen don't play favorites when it comes to chilies. They smother their Mexican dishes in both red and green varieties, adding extra spice and color to burritos, quesadillas, and huevos rancheros. They split their passions elsewhere in the kitchen, too. Not content to only serve Mexican cuisine, they also plate up all-American classics such as giant cinnamon rolls, club sandwiches, and housemade potato chips.
