“Noches De Penca” dinner makes an encore at Penca (MENU)

Welcome to the finer side of Mexican cuisine.

Penca is hosting another five-course “Noches de Penca” dinner at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, October 21.

Since the beginning, Penca has been taking different angles to Mexico City-inspired cuisine, but with new executive chef David Solorzano, his inspiration veers off into the influences of Central Mexico.

Chef Solorzano has crafted all five courses to represent a finer side of Mexican cuisine, including the ever-so cherished mole to get things going and sneaking in some calabacitas near the middle.

Seats are $60 per person and you’ll need to make reservations beforehand. Also, beverage pairings are an option for an additional $30 per person.
