The menu is inspired by the US southwest, but by no means should be considered Mexican or Tex-Mex. A bread basket shows up while you study the menu. Those oddly textured, oddly colored squares are blue corn bread... or perhaps blue cornbread. Delicious, with corn kernels mixed into the batter. The free range chicken with orange salsa was a good choice - again only hinting at the southwestern influence, not overpowering with it.
Reservations are recommended. We were lucky to stop in on a Tuesday night without reservations and be seated immediately. We noticed we were the last allowed in without reservations and the hostess did not take reservations for the remainder of the evening. But, you know what? Even with a reservation, this deli won't be serving you corned beef on rye with a side of cole slaw!
