Between the Saltillo tiles, the soaring ceilings, and the vividly colorful artwork, Fonda San Miguel has all the trappings of a memorable date night. Sip a few top-shelf margaritas at the bar before slipping over to a corner table. Crowd favorites include Angels on Horseback (bacon-wrapped shrimp) and the ever-popular Ancho Chile Relleno San Miguel, but make sure you leave room for coffee and dessert (a.k.a. crepes sauced with rich goat milk caramel and toasted almonds).
With museum-quality artwork, exotic plants, and international décor setting the scene for their classic regional cuisine, Fonda San Miguel has made a name for itself as one of the finest interior Mexican restaurants in all of America since opening in 1975. Feast on Calabacitas Rellenas, Enchiladas, Ancho Relleno San Miguel, and more, along with a bounty of rice, beans, corn tortillas, and the requisite chips and salsa. The illuminated bar’s Margarita on the rocks is numero uno, and all tequilas take a refreshing happy hour dip on Monday through Thursday afternoons.?
