El Balcon to Close
Longtime meeting spot for Las Hermanas del Desierto–El Balcon–will be closing at the end of this month. For many years, Chef Marcelino has worked his culinary magic here in San Felipe to bring us unusually beautiful and delicious traditional Mexican dishes using simple, locally grown ingredients.
Marcelino has decided to move his restaurant to San Quintin on the Pacific side of the Baja. He says his new location is a lovely spot overlooking the bay,and, he invites all of us to stop in to visit him should we travel down the Baja. San Felipe’s loss will be San Quintin’s gain. We wish him well in his new endeavor.
Note: El Balcon will be the meeting place for the first Hermanas luncheon get-together for the 2013-2014 fall/winter season. Plan now to meet up on Monday, November 25th at 12:30 p.m. We will order off of the menu and remember to BYOB/BYOW if you want something other than coke, tea, or lemonade to drink. As always, it is nice to be able to give him a heads up on a head count. Leave a comment at the end of this post if you plan to attend. Or, email, firstname.lastname@example.org and put: “El Balcon YES” in the subject line. Or, if all of this is just too much, just pick up the phone and dial: 686-573-8996 (Mex), or, 970-988-2929 (U.S.) to indicate your RSVP.
