This Father’s Day, treat Dad to a festive meal at Casa Sol y Mar! Check out our delicious, Dad-sized specials below.
Enjoy live mariachi music, folkloric dancers, authentic Mexican cuisine and frothy margaritas during the Cinco de Mayo celebrations at Diane Powers Bazaar del Mundo Restaurants: Casa Guadalajara, Casa de Pico, Casa de Bandini and Casa Sol y Mar.
Through her award-winning restaurants and Bazaar del Mundo Shops, Diane Powers continues to honor her love of Mexican culture. The embodiments of all things “fiesta!”, the Bazaar del Mundo restaurants will feature inspired “Cinco” fare, such as “Cincoritas,” delicious strawberry, kiwi and lemon-lime margaritas decked out in the colors of the Mexican flag; and “Enchiladas Banderas,” a savory sampling of chicken, cheese and beef enchiladas served with three different sauces – rojas, verde and blanca (red, green and white).
