Summer Dinner Pairing

July 29th, 2016

​Join us for an amazing evening with a featured menu from Chef David Dennis.

Chef, along with two of Matador Cantina’s finest bartenders, Monika and Chris, just recently had the fortunate opportunity to visit Jalisco, Mexico. During their travels, they toured the Fortaleza distillery and were blown away by the craftsmanship, quality, and flavors of their tequilas. This menu is Chef’s sampling of some of the foods and cocktails from the Tequila Valley.

Doors and bar open at 6:30 pm. Dinner begins promptly at 7:00 pm.
