CHILE RELLENO. Anaheim Green Chile filled with mushroom duxelle and served with a garlic pinto-bean demi-glace. Really great. Nice pepper with a bit of heat and a pleasant mushroom center. The sauce was delicious.
BOLOGNESE PASTA. Slow-cooked and prepared from pork shoulder, pancetta, and tomatoes, served with tagliatelle pasta.
Potatoes and Spinach.
QUAIL. Two grilled quail in a Red Chile Juniper demi-glace. Served with sauteed fingerling poatoes and Farmers Market Vegetables.
Special Lamb Loin with Potatoes and Veggies. Quite tasty but very rare!
Lamb loin but with no potatoes.
Ice Cream and Seasonal Fruit.
CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE. The ultimate dessert. Made with a river of warm chocolate, inside of a delicate chocolate cake, tempered and served with creme fraiche. Not that much ooze.
TRES LECHES. A traditional New Mexican moist cake, made with three milks and served with strawberry icing, Too good. Too sweet!
Overall, pretty tasty. Presentation is a touch rustic, but service was awesome and execution very solid. Overall style was fairly 90s. The room was cozy and attractive with a nice wood-fire smell.
