Las Brisas serves up a savory menu of authentic Mexican fare made with fresh ingredients. Taste buds can begin their south-of-the-border tour with an order of spicy goat-cheese jalapeños, grilled and dressed in a ranch-sauce shirtwaist ($6.95). Meat-centric options include carne asada made with juicy skirt steak cooked to order ($14.95), a chili verde dish composed of braised pork loin in a fresh tomatillo sauce ($14.95), and pumpkin-seed mole with chicken and mild, smoky spices ($14.95). Tangy ceviche tostadas quell seafood cravings with the help of fresh, unfailingly polite halibut, marinated in lime juice ($15.95). While sampling these edibles, diners can quaff flavored margaritas ($7–$28) ensconced in one of the warmly hued dining room's spacious booths or under umbrellas on an outdoor brick patio.
The menu at Las Brisas is extensive, so if you're not sure what to order, just look for the fleur-de-lis. The symbol marks the restaurant's house specialties, a diverse selection that includes everything from ceviche tostadas to flame-broiled carne asada. The hearty, homestyle meals match the rustic decor; wrought-iron lanterns hang above knotted wooden tables, which are set off from the full bar by stained glass.
