Tuesday October 3, 2023

Beginning Tuesday, October 3 through Sunday, November 5, guests are invited to experience the artistry of dLeña’s kitchen and bar programs on a mesmerizing journey that blends the lines between the spirit world and the physical realm. Chef Richard Sandoval has created an inventive menu that pairs dishes from the “physical” world with drinks from the “spirit” world. Dishes include:

Empanadas de Muertos ($15) with guajillo, corn masa, cheese, chicken tinga, crema fresca, avocado, and cilantro purée from the ‘physical’ world, paired with an avocado mezcal shot from the ‘spirit’ world.

Filete de Mole Negro ($55) with beef tenderloin, housemade mole negro, heirloom carrot, butternut squash purée, marigold, and microgreen from the ‘physical’ world, paired with a mezcal sour from the ‘spirit’ world.

Smoky Sweet Potato Margarita ($17) with Del Maguey Vida mezcal, sweet potato purée, lemon, and agave from the ‘spirit’ world, paired with sweet potato chips from the ‘physical’ world.

Purple Corn Oaxacan Old Fashioned ($17) with Del Maguey Vida mezcal, purple corn agave, and mole bitters from the ‘spirit’ world, paired with crispy corn kernels with tajín dust from the ‘physical’ world.
