The chefs at La Mestiza dice fresh ingredients and stir dishes that draw upon traditional family recipes and influences from around the world. Diners ponder playing sombrero-based disk golf while browsing the menu’s dinner entrees, which include the enchiladas pollo con mole, tender morsels of chicken wrapped in tortillas and drizzled with dark spice-infused sauce, or chilies rellenos de queso, chili peppers flooded with warm tides of cheese. Dinner plates feel complete with a side of refried or vegetarian beans or a helping of mexican rice. Cold beer salves grateful gullets, and house margaritas harness bittersweet power like an Oompa-Loompa riot. The restaurant’s warm orange and yellow walls serve as roosts for works by local artists, which gaze down at guests chattering happily around flower-topped tables.
Like many Mexicans, owner Antonio Estrada considers himself a Mestiza, which means that his lineage consists of both European and American Indian people from many different regions. To pay homage to this eclectic heritage, he not only draws upon traditional family recipes from his own family, but from culinary traditions all around Mexico. Using fresh ingredients, the chefs at La Mestiza craft a lineup of classic dishes, including poblano and cheese quesadillas and juicy carne asada steaks. To add to the authenticity, they make their own homemade tortilla chips and tamales the old-fashioned way—forging them in the searing, cauldron-like trumpet bells of ancient Mariachi bands.
The festive dining room’s warm orange and yellow walls serve as roosts for pieces of art, which gaze down at flower-topped tables illuminated by hanging lights.
