Chef David Peraza of Cantina South seasons a menu of authentic Mexican cuisine mixed with modern flavors, delighting visitors with zesty, flavorful enchiladas, roasted chicken, and grilled steaks in a contemporary dining room. While dipping chips into tableside guacamole, diners browse dinner fare such as arrachera con camarones, a plate of grilled steak and jumbo shrimp basking in roasted tomato-chipotle sauce. Swaddled in banana leaves, pork tenderloin pibil lounges on a futon of black beans and rice, sprinkled with achiote, orange, and garlic crumbs. Enchiladas come filled with lump crab or duck and unexpected ingredients such as chayote, sweet-potato flan, and love. Couples can share a classic flan or pastel de tres leches to seal meals with a romantic cymbal roll.

Brunch opens Sundays with a hearty buffet of classic breakfast foods including pancakes, french toast, and the comics section. Traditional Mexican breakfasts showcase the many faces of eggs, as in the blanquillos con salpicon—eggs scrambled with shredded steak and vegetables—and a build-your-own huevos rancheros bar.

A colorful bottle chandelier immediately sets a vibrant tone for diners as they sit at a bucolic wooden booth or on the breezy outdoor patio. DJs play Latin tunes on weekends, spinning a festive feel throughout the restaurant. Though not included in this Groupon, diners can enjoy hand-made margaritas and a huge list of tequilas.
