Nestled among galleries and studios in the heart of San José del Cabo’s historic Distrito del Arte, Mi Casa is an elegant showcase for Los Cabos-style local color and traditional Mexican specialty dishes. The restaurant’s picturesque and romantic courtyard dining area is in sync with neighborhood’s bohemian ambience, but the delicious menu offerings are a unique fusion of México’s culinary heritage and the artistic sensibilities of Alain Derouin, excecutive chef for Grupo Mi Casa (there is another Mi Casa restaurant in Cabo San Lucas, as well as acclaimed stand-alones like Café Canela, Peacock’s, and La Panga Antigua).
Begin your fine dining journey with beloved Baja starters like almejas rellenas (fire pit cooked queen clams stuffed with bacon, cheese, and veggies) and choriburro a machaca and chorizo-filled burrito, then progress to regional favorites like Pueblan Chile en Nogada and Mole Poblano, and that famed Yucatecan standard, Cochinita Pibil, before finishing with decadent meal cappers like a Mexican goat cheese tart baked with piloncillo and Damiana liqueur, and añejo tequila infused mango ice cream. And for the maximum Mi Casa experience, pair your multi-course meal with selections from the internationally representative wine list, including excellent options from Baja’s own wine country, Valle de Guadalupe outside Ensenada.
