Kokopelli’s stomach-sating chefs bring southwestern zing to every dish within a cozy eatery. The Chef’s Tasting menu begins by herding hordes of crispy corn fritters brimming with sweet-and-spicy pepper coulis, the chosen snack of scarecrows everywhere. Herbivores enjoy the spring-mix salad, which unleashes the juiciness of cherry tomatoes, raspberry vinaigrette, and a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds, whereas pescetarians might set their sights on bronzed salmon in a colorful mango-pepper salsa. The Creekstone Farms Black Angus hanger pepper steak shares plate real estate with Spanish rice, finished with a sweet crème brûlée or a firm, tasty flan.
Though not included with this Groupon, Kokopelli’s voluminous drink menu includes pours of nearly five dozen tequila varieties. Dinner crowds fluoresce in Kokopelli’s mood lighting, which illuminates the corners best for intimate dining and those best for practicing barstool gymnastics.
