Cantina Laredo, the new Mexican restaurant in Clayton, is hosting a Tequila Dinner on Wednesday, September 16, 7:00 p.m. The dinner will feature four Cabo Wabo tequilas paired with a multi-course off-the-menu lineup of dishes created by executive chef Sean Scott. Cost is 49.99 per person.
Here’s what’s being served:
Chicharron de queso chalupa featuring crisp cheese, avocado with salsa mortajada as the first course.
A watermelon salad made featuring jicama, watermelon, strawberries, and lime as the next course.
The third course will be the guests’ choice of:
Filet Tampiqueno – a 7 oz. filet with crimini mushrooms, as well as roasted garlic potatoes with queso fresco
Banana leaf wrapped halibut with artichokes, grape tomatoes and cilantro rice
A flavorful coconut pecan ice cream with cajeta (sweet) sauce will be the final course
A Cabo Wabo representative will be on hand to talk about the tequilas, but, alas, it will not be Sammy Hagar. Although the Red Rocker is closely associated with the Cabo Wabo brand, he sold off his ownership in the company a few years back.
Also, Hagar will be in New York that day, promoting his “lifestyle cookbook” Are We Having Any Fun Yet? He is scheduled to be on ABC-TV’s The View Wednesday. He is scheduled to sign his book at Left Bank Books in the CWE this Friday, September 18, at 4:00 p.m.
Cantina Laredo, which opened back in winter, is located at 7710 Forsyth in Clayton. To reserve your spot at this Tequila Dinner, call 314-725-2447. Click HERE to go to Cantina Laredo’s website.
