The Rick Bayless–trained chefs at Cilantro scratch-make each of their authentic Mexican masterpieces during brunch, lunch, and dinner, with new menu items coming soon. In the enchiladas suizas, corn tortillas envelop chicken and swathe it in tomato sauce and chihuahua cheese ($10), silencing midday munchies by drowning them in creamy, cheesy bliss. Starters such as the seviche de pescado, a lime-marinated fish served with homemade chips and enhanced with cilantro, tomatoes, onions, and diced avocado ($9), prep palates for carne asada con salsa de cascabel tomatillo—beef slathered with a red-chili rub ($22). Cilantro also uncaps and serves many Mexican beers and tequilas, and proudly blends a house specialty mango-cilantro margarita ($8) so overtly delicious that it's illegal for minors and bears to consume.

Cilantro's stained-glass fixtures, orange walls, and well-lit paintings by Alejandro Romero radiate the authentic south-of-the-border ambiance that eyes everywhere appreciate. Likewise, because the space plays host to three of the day's major meals, brunch guests needn't feel rushed to finish their margaritas.

Cilantro Bar and Grill

Cilantro Bar and Grill’s Rick Bayless–trained chefs forge contemporary cuisine using fresh produce, locally sourced meats, and recipes culled from the families of owners Armando Cristobal and his sister and brother-in-law, Sylvia and Gonzalo de Santiago. The kitchen builds meals from scratch at brunch, lunch, and dinner, sating appetites after brisk strolls around the Capitol or romantic narwhal rides across Lake Mendota. Orange walls complement the colors of game hen en escabeche, whose mashed sweet potatoes balance the savory flavors of an achiote garlic marinade, whereas stained-glass fixtures mimic the vibrant hues of cabernet sangria, hibiscus iced tea, and mango-cilantro margaritas. Diners can sample the cuisine of four different regions of Mexico by ordering the tamales surtidos, a sampler of four cornhusks stuffed with steamed corn masa flour. Cilantro also serves seven types of Mexican beer for guests to sip or toss at supporting actors during rehearsals for upcoming daytime TV roles.
