Crafted from the timeless family recipes of chef Carlos Melendez, Coyote Crossing serves a colorful array of authentic regional Mexican cuisine. Valid during lunch or dinner hours, the five-course meal begins with a heartfelt commencement speech from the waiter and a hearty helping of black-bean or aztec soup—a classic chicken-tortilla soup served with avocado, queso fresco, and guajillo broth. The multipart tongue tango continues with rounds of salads and appetizers, including goat-cheese empanadillas that are sent to tables via trumpet blast from a mariachi horn player. Finally, a main course of poblano-packed pollo enchiladas, coyote veggie burrito, seafood tamale, or exotically spiced puntas chipotle paves the way for a dessert of vanilla flan or tres leches cake.
Coyote Crossing’s large dining room fireplace emits dancing light across the spacious interior, whereas its picturesque outdoor patio boasts wrought-iron tables, burbling fountains, and authentic oxygen molecules imported from Mexico.
Chefs at Coyote Crossing put great care into crafting their authentic Mexican cuisine—for instance, they blend 54 ingredients into a signature mole sauce that takes two days to make. This detail-oriented approach takes them beyond standard tacos to dishes such as chipotle prime beef tips or tampiquena, a thin-cut, grilled steak served with sautéed poblano peppers. During summer months, the kitchen highlights fresh seafood, offering such delights as watermelon shrimp ceviche or a catch-of-the-day with poblano sauce and fresh pesto vegetables.
Coyote Crossing’s dining room evokes Southwestern style. In cool weather, patrons can warm up at the fireplace indoors; on balmier days, they can retreat to the sunny brick patio with outdoor seating, where they confront an enchanting terrace replete with a stone fountain, the shade of leaves, and a delicate floral aroma.
