About this Business
From Our Editors
At Fresco Mexican Grill, the kitchen is fully outfitted with appliances, but one is noticeably absent—the microwave. Rather than reheating their Mexican cuisine, the culinary team crafts each dish from fresh ingredients culled from local farmers, whether they are mashing avocados into guacamole tableside, or stuffing quesadillas with cheese, chicken, and green chiles. Their fajitas—assembled with sizzling strips of jerk chicken or morsels of steak marinated in garlic, lime and tequila—complement other classic eats such as tacos, enchiladas, and chimichangas. Rounding out the menu is a smattering of American favorites and reinventions of classic dishes, such as black-bean lasagna, which adds a Mexican flair to an Italian specialty much like the mariachi band featured in every Verdi opera.
