El Mexicano features a one-stop gastronomic tour through the most emblematic Mexican dishes. In collaboration of the restaurant’s chef Jonathan Salinas, the menu was enhanced while staying true to original recipes that use authentic ingredients to provide the highest quality of Mexican cuisine. The contemporary presentation of each dish is carefully crafted using unique garnishes with a creative touch. The most representative dish on the menu is the Costillar de Res, or rib of beef, cooked in its juices and served with a freshly made guajillo chili sauce and garnished with an avocado leaf for aroma. The Costillar de Res pairs perfectly with the special hibiscus margarita.
Additional renovated dining areas include La Cenaduria, the Lobby Bar, the Sushi Bar, and La Cevicheria.
