Coyote Crossing was preparing to celebrate its 25-year anniversary in early 2020, unfortunately, COVID derailed those plans. However, the restaurant is now celebrating with specials that include tacos served on tortillas made from cricket flour, plus Saffron Marinate Foie Gras Memela, a special dish that has been added to the menu that features organic, locally-sourced masa blanco, seared foie gras, salsa macha con pasas, ajo, guajillo, amaretto, Gran Marnier, sesame, and frijoles tamarindo. In the coming months, Carlos Melendez, owner of Coyote Crossing, and Christopher Hora, co-owner and executive chef, will be introducing whole cricket dishes as well.
In addition to the new dishes, Coyote Crossing has introduced an “Anniversary Cocktail Menu” featuring their own line of mezcal, which is distilled in San Luis Potosí and Oaxaca, Mexico. There’s “Fly by Night” with Coyote Crossing Espadin Mezcal, Crème da Violette, Luxardo, and lime; “M.I.A.” features Coyote Crossing Espadin Mezcal, Aperol, Amaro Montenegro, and lime; and “Mezcal Maria,” which contains Ilegal Mezcal and house-made bloody Mary mix.
