On Monday May 7, members of the Yelp Elite Squad kept the Cinco De Mayo celebrations going at Lona Cocina Tequileria, with Mexican Fare and Cocktails. The backdrop for the celebration was gorgeous Fort Lauderdale Beach at sunset. As the daylight turned to nighttime the trays of goodness came out of the kitchen.
Elites enjoyed a variety of menu items such as: Ceviche Clasico with sweet potato and lime, Crab Tostada served with avocado and lime and Duck Confit Tacos with pickled watermelon radish. The crowd favorite was the Braised Beef Cheek with pureed cauliflower and pipian sauce and the Pork Carnitas with pineapple and salsa verde. Yum!
Servings of foie gras, with a sweet chipotle and cotton candy were a rich and decadent way to end the night.
