Although the Aztec people have been universally recognized for their rich architectural history, they are best remembered for their highly successful maize product placement in Field of Dreams. Immerse taste buds in cinematically acclaimed cuisine with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mexican fare and drinks at Los Sombreros in Scottsdale.
Owner and chef Azucena Tovar's spice-laden menu bursts with fresh ingredients and Mexican comfort fare that has garnered Los Sombreros several awards from publications such as the Phoenix New Times. Stomachs are revved up by sharable starters such as the crab and mango salad ($9.95) and the huitlacoche crepas, with each flaky crepe delivering Mexican truffles under a shower of goat and blue cheese drizzled in pomegranate sauce ($9.95). Entrees sizzle up in the exhibition-style kitchen, flaunting their savory aromas and silverware duels in varieties such as the slow-roasted carnitas ($17.95) and the rib eye con cuatro salsas, ensconcing carnivorous bites with four fruit-and-veggie medleys ($21.95).
Los Sombreros' warm-toned interior satiates optic appetites with custom cast-iron and wood detailing, all shrouded in low lighting that conjures romantic ambiance and masks any salsa being smuggled out in your pockets. The handsomely coiffed outdoor patio invites guests to venture into the night breezes with lunar rays spotlighting the drink menu and night bites such as the tequila flan ($8.95).
