More people know about it now than ever, but in my opinion, Mexique is a hidden gem.
Read my review to find out why!
When I went? Oh so many times I can’t even count! BUT, most recently for this year’s restaurant week and then a few weeks before that for my hubby’s first time :)
Favorite part? The standout is definitely the food! The menu is a fusion of French and Mexican cuisine perfectly combined to create an exceptional dining experience. Chef Carlos Gaytan, the owner and executive chef, is incredibly creative in each dish that he’s produced. While Mexique is definitely for the foodie – most notably because it’s received its first Michelin star this past year – it’s not stuffy at all. The staff is friendly and accommodating and I know this because this last time we went, they were about to sit us at the same seat we were at the time before, and although there was nothing wrong with that table at all, we wanted to switch it up and sit closer to the kitchen. While we had to wait a little longer to take our seats, the woman at the hostess stand was totally understanding and had no qualms about fulfilling our request! In addition, the restaurant is small and quaint but at the same time, yields an upbeat comfort within it’s walls. To put it simply, it’s cozy… and I like it.
