Rustic lanterns cast warm beams throughout El Nuevo Rodeo Restaurante, spotlighting a menu of authentic Mexican fare. After pulling up to the table, a server ousts pits from avocados, scoops the green flesh and mashes it into guacamole, providing diners with a fresh, buttery dip and providing chips with nutrient-rich facials. Groups of two or four can slurp briny mouthfuls of the half-order of oyster on the half shell, nestled on a bed of ice and topped with sliced avocado and sangrita. Cochinita Pibil, a Yucatan specialty, marries slow-roasted pork with fried plantains, rice, beans and habanero-onion slaw, and costillas de res y camarones pairs garlic shrimp with grilled spare rib tips and cactus salad. Chile relleno treats palates to an abundance of textures with crunchy battered peppers, velvety cheese, and a silken scarf of ranchero sauce.
Though not included in this Groupon, the combination restaurant, outdoor café, and club also sports a full-service bar with specialty cocktails, Mexican beers, select organic wines, and top-shelf tequilas priced at up to $32 per shot. The family-friendly establishment seats eaters amidst a casual interior with colorful tiles, authentic art, and ornate carved couches for sitting or lounging.
El Nuevo Rodeo Restaurant
Not long after El Nuevo Rodeo Restaurant opened in 2003, its made-from-scratch Mexican dishes and vibrant late-night atmosphere began to make the lively eatery a hotspot with locals. The restaurant rapidly began expanding its authentic Mexican menu with regional culinary offerings such as pineapple-chipotle margaritas and guacamole appetizers handmade at your table in a lava-rock molcajete. Using handmade tortillas, tamales, and sauces, chefs whip up seasonal specials designed to complement selections from the curated wine and tequila menus.
