El Lobo Restaurant Launches With Rustic Mexican Classics In Old Colonial Setting
2012-08-08 · By Editor
Wolves are known for their keen senses with heightened hearing, smell, taste and vision that demand the respect of the animal kingdom. Led by Partner/Executive Chef Sonia Gomez, El Lobo (the wolf) is a new restaurant on Broadway that aims to appeal to those same senses, and in doing so, hopes to earn a reputation of their own.
The 40-seat eatery is serving guests a menu of authentic, rustic Mexican cuisine that includes such classic entrees as open-fire roasted Poblano peppers stuffed with pork picadillo (pears, plumbs and almonds) drizzled with walnut cream sauce and sprinkled with fresh Pomegranates; pan-seared Red Snapper sautéed in a fresh tomato, olive and caper jalapeno tequila sauce; and grilled Black Tiger Prawns sautéed in a garlic chile de arbol sauce with green and red bell peppers and onions served over stewed potatoes and vegetables. All entrees are priced under $20.
Located in the historic Bluff Heights neighborhood, El Lobo boasts a décor reminiscent of a cozy comedor (dining room) of an Old Colonial Mexican Hacienda. With vintage movie posters of famous Mexican films lining the walls, the atmosphere is intimate and comfortable. Traditional seating and even a few large tapestry upholstered chairs further lend an air of authenticity.
El Lobo is open for dinner nightly at 2941 East Broadway in Long Beach. For reservations, call (562) 438-1311. Visit ellobolongbeach.com.
