Our Modern Mexican menu features the best of traditional Mexican culinary techniques fused with the vast array of amazing ingredients available here, in the SF Bay area. These are recipes that have evolved since Chef Gray began cooking Mexican cuisine in San Francisco, over a dozen years ago, and have been refined as new ingredients appeared in the market. Our Mary's Smoked Duck Enchiladas w/ Sweet Plantains and Blackberry Mole topped with Queso Cotija and Fresh Corn Sorbet w/ Cinnamon-Piloncillo Sprinkle & Chocolate Shavings are example of the kind of innovation offered in this menu.
