Crafted from the timeless family recipes of chef Carlos Melendez, Coyote Crossing serves a colorful array of authentic regional Mexican cuisine. Lunch- and dinner-seeking spoons dive into chorizo-strewn black-bean soup. Tongues tango with appetizers such as duck-and-mango quesadillas and chihuahua-cheese-stuffed jalapeño peppers that include tequila at dinnertime. A main course of cheesy, poblano-packed pollo enchiladas is sent to tables via trumpet blast from a mariachi-horn player, and Punta’s chipotle’s exotically spiced Prime-beef tips pave the way for a dessert of tres leches cake.
Coyote Crossing’s large dining-room fireplace emits dancing light across the spacious interior. During warmer months, noshers chow down on the picturesque outdoor patio, which boasts wrought-iron tables, burbling fountains, and authentic oxygen molecules imported from Mexico.
Chefs at Coyote Crossing put great care into crafting their authentic Mexican cuisine—for instance, they blend 54 ingredients into a signature mole sauce that takes two days to make. This detail-oriented approach takes them beyond standard tacos to dishes such as chipotle prime beef tips or tampiquena, a thin-cut, grilled steak served with sautéed poblano peppers. During summer months, the kitchen highlights fresh seafood, offering such delights as watermelon shrimp ceviche or a catch-of-the-day with poblano sauce and fresh pesto vegetables.
Coyote Crossing’s dining room evokes Southwestern style. In cool weather, patrons can warm up at the fireplace indoors; on balmier days, they can retreat to the sunny brick patio with outdoor seating, where they confront an enchanting terrace replete with a stone fountain, the shade of leaves, and a delicate floral aroma.
