The green chile burger we had yesterday at Mesa Grill was so good it brought tears to our eyes. So did the fries.
Also bringing tears to our eyes was the newest dinner menu item – chorizo meatballs in a arbol/pasilla/ancho chile sauce — and some cayenne-spiked whipped cream plopped atop a vanilla flan that took no prisoners…and gave a whole new dimension to this silky smooth dessert standard.
Put them together and you have the best meal we’ve had at Mesa in a coon’s age. Instead of the tepid spicing and indifferent cooking (and plating) we’ve seen in the past, these items brought some serious snap to the party.
That’s right food fans…we’re raving about a meal at Mesa Grill.
Alert the media.
Hey! We are the media!
Okay then, alert Bobby Flay.
Our lunch for two — with a 20% tip — came to $85.

PS: Major props to Mesa’s crew for being the largest contributor to Three Square last year — raising over $25,000 during Restaurant Week. They’re hoping to top that this week.
