Nicasio Comedor Mexicano creates traditional Mexican cuisine with a modern interpretation. This is a perfect restaurant for both omnivores and vegetarians. The menu changes frequently based on seasonal availability. Because this restaurant is small, reservations are recommended.

For fine-dining, Aperi is our #1 choice. Extraordinary dishes are prepared with local and coastal ingredients demonstrating a combination of Italian, French and Mexican techniques. Dishes can be ordered A La Carte, but we highly recommend the tasting menu offered for lunch or dinner.
