The Deal

Last week, OC Weekly named SOL Mexican Cocina the area's Best Waterfront Dining for 2011, and Orange Coast Magazine has called it one of the Top 10 Restaurants in OC for the last two years. Our Deal Experts negotiated an exclusive $59 dinner for two at this local favorite, which includes margaritas the OC Weekly calls "exquisitely crafted."

Regularly $121.50, this special menu was created by Chef Deborah Schneider, who earned a James Beard nomination for her Mexican cookbook. Indulge in her authentic Baja cuisine in this upscale cantina -- accented with indoor fireplaces and candlelight -- or on the oceanfront patio.

This meal begins with an order of guacamole SOL -- prepared with mango, tequila, goat cheese, toasted pepitas, pomegranate and cilantro -- and two Cadillac margaritas, and continues with the following courses:

First course (select two):
• Coconut calamari: panko-breaded calamari steak deep-fried, with dried orange peel, sesame seeds and a spicy lime dipping sauce
• Chorizo and mushrooms con queso: chorizo and wild mushrooms sautéed with garlic and epazote, baked with a trio of Mexican cheeses, serrano slivers and scallions
• Peel and eat shrimp cucarachas: 12 shrimp, pan-roasted in the shell with garlic, cotixa cheese, lemon and chile

Second course (select two):
• Shortribs barbacoa en cazuela: cazuelita of tender Angus shortribs braised with guajillos, avocado leaf, nopales, tomatoes and corn tortillas
• Kurobuta pork carnitas: heirloom pork slow-roasted and shredded, served en cazuela with diced avocado, onion, tomatillo salsa, chicharron and warm corn tortillas
• Chipotle chicken: roasted half chicken with garlic, chipotles, tomato-avocado salad and corn tortillas
• Shrimp chile relleno: two grilled poblano chiles stuffed with arroz verde, shrimp, Oaxacan cheese and fresh tomato salsa diabla

Third course (select two, paired with a cup of coffee or tea each):
• Select any dessert each from the menu, including the dark chocolate banana bread pudding or dulce de leche flan
