Classy de Mayo:

In honor and celebration of Cinco de Mayo, Fonda San Miguel will feature a special menu of traditional Mexican dishes inspired by the colors of the Mexican flag, and highlight a one-of-a-kind festive cocktailcreated by tequila expert and author Lucinda Hutson.

Fonda San Miguel’s special Cinco de Mayo menu includes Tamales in Mole Poblano, made with Fonda’s own fresh-ground masa and served with the traditional mole of Puebla. Fonda San Miguel celebrates the flag of Mexico with its special La Bandera Enchiladas, featuring handmade enchiladas topped with verde sauce, rojo sauce and suiza blanco. Fonda’s tri-colored Chiles en Nogada – stuffed poblano chiles topped a walnut-based cream sauce and pomegranate seeds – are as beautiful as they are delicious.

To commemorate Cinco de Mayo, Fonda San Miguel will also feature a specialty cocktail created by Lucinda Hutson, author of “Tequila Cantina de Lucinda” and “Tequila! The Spirit of Mexico in a Bottle!” Hutson’s ruby bougainvillea-colored Prickly Pear Margarita is prepared with a splash of homemade jalapeno syrup and served in a glass rimmed with red chile-seasoned salt – the perfect contemporary accompaniment to Fonda’s classic Cinco de Mayo meal.

Also the author of “The Herb Garden Cookbook” and a renowned organic gardener and garden designer, Hutson has redesigned Fonda San Miguel’s landscape to include a magnificent tiered stone fountain discovered by Hutson and Fonda owner Tom Gilliland, which will be lit with changing colors and enhance the restaurant’s already flourishing grounds. Additionally, Hutson added a colorfulcourtyard gardensucculent troughs, a beautiful desert garden and lush planted pots, including three oversized green pots that surround the statue of San Miguel, a Mexican patron saint and the restaurant’s namesake. Hutson’s gardening project will change with the seasons, and act as a serene welcome into the beauty found within the doors of Fonda San Miguel.
