Descanso’s unique dining experience involves sitting around a plancha grill while a taquero prepares your meal in front of you. While the expert griller works on your choice of entree, work your way through appetizers such as the Fideo soup with toasted noodles in a tomato broth, Caesar salad with spicy dressing and pico de gallo, and Mexican fried rice. Main course options include skirt steak, carne asada, al pastor, or the vegetarian-friendly chile rellenos. Choose from a side of blue corn or flour tortillas. You can also enjoy your meal “a la plancha” during brunch with entrees including huevos rancheros, chilaquiles, and steak and eggs.

Adding to the restaurant’s interactive experience is the traveling tequila cart which brings sipping tequilas to your table ($28 to $77).
