Live flamenco and Cuban music swirls through El Meson’s dimly lit dining room as friendly staffers dole out hefty portions of house-made Spanish-Caribbean bistro eats packed into a lunch buffet and lengthy dinner menu. Dining duos and quartets can sample the savory notes of the Pescado Caribe’s pan-seared grouper filet, encrusted with jamaican seasonings, or bite into the carne frita con mofongo, brimming with red-wine-sautéed pork tenderloins accompanied by fried plantains. Ensure each delectable bite makes a safe journey through all three stomachs by sipping a glass of wine, such as organic Oko malbec from Argentina, or let a bottle of imported brew, including Tecate or Pacifico, chaperone culinary journeys.

Afternoon eaters can refuel at El Meson’s extensive lunch buffet, overflowing with white and saffron rice, black and red beans, vegetable soup, and up to five featured entrees. Past buffets entrees have included pork ribs in barbecue sauce, zesty bites of chicken-curry stew, and house-made meatballs. A colorful salad bar sates plantivores with variety of vegetables, cabbage slaw, and fresh fruit shaped like vegetables before postlunch munchings are rounded out with a sweet treat of creamy flan or rice pudding.
