Moises Rodriguez is not only the owner of Que Viva; he's also the entertainment. On Friday and Saturday nights, he serenades guests with his flamenco guitar playing as they dine on Mexican dishes such as handmade tamales, carnitas, and grilled chicken breast in red chile mole. Chefs craft each dish using fresh ingredients selected by hand at a restaurant wholesaler each week by co-owner Isabel Rodriguez. Isabel's influence also shines in the restaurant's brightly decorated dining room, which features colorful flowers and carved wooden birds. On the outdoor patio, patrons eat while enjoying the warmth of the sun or the shape of a cloud that looks like an old boss falling out of a chair.
