Cozymels' lengthy menu beaches mouths on the coast of Old Mexico with authentic flavors from the non-central locales of America's savory southern neighbor. Get acclimated to the restaurant's food ocean by starting with a traditional sampler—chicken nachos, spinach-mushroom quesadillas, and crispy chicken flautas with guacamole, jalepeños, pico de gallo, and sour cream ($12). An entree of enchiladas los cabos prolongs your taste buds' beach party with two enchiladas stuffed with sautéed shrimp, lump crab, and cheese, then topped with poblano cream ($14). Otherwise, keep it peninsular with the Yucatán especial (shrimp and scallops sautéed with spinach, red onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, and poblano chilis, topped with creamy Cancun sauce and served over Yucatán rice; $16) or venture into the spicy heart of flavor country with homestyle carne asada, a 10-ounce grilled skirt steak topped with spicy rajas mix, cheese, spicy gaujillo chili sauce, and served with Yucatán rice, refritos, and Mexican potatoes ($17). If your appetite is still struggling against the waves of savory flavors at the end of your meal, finish it off by running it over with a Cozy Cadillac margarita (Cazadores Silver, Cointreau, sweet and sour, and fresh lime; $11).
