Celebrate A Mexican Favorite During La Sandia's Chile Relleno Festival

La Sandia

395 Santa Monica Place, 305 N, Santa Monica, CA

11:30am to 10:00pm

With dozens of restaurants around the globe, celebrity Chef Richard Sandoval is the father of modern Mexican cuisine. His clever takes on familiar classics have delighted palates from California to Dubai. This month, Sandoval’s La Sandia Mexican Kitchen and Tequila Bar at Santa Monica Place is highlighting a chile-lover’s delight with its annual Chile Relleno Festival, which runs through September 16th, 2014.

The Chile Relleno Festival also includes an Instagram contest:  Post your shot with @LaSandiaRSR and #rellenofestLS for a chance to win dinner for two, including drinks, shared appetizer, entrees and dessert.

Pairing with your favorite relleno dish are two special cocktails: the Pomegranate Margarita, made with tequila, lime and pomegranate seeds and fresh pomegranate purée, and the Coconut Mojito, a creative twist on the Cuban classic with Malibu Red (a combo of rum and tequila), mint and citrus, served in a coconut-and-ancho-chile-powder-rimmed glass.  

The Chile Relleno Festival is just one of four seasonal festivals at La Sandia celebrating classic dishes. While you may have missed the Guacamole Festival earlier this summer, the fall promises plenty of culinary intrigue as the Mole Festival comes in October, 2014.

Whether you work up an appetite by hitting the surf or shopping at Santa Monica Place, definitely make plans to stop by La Sandia for some excellent modern Mexican food and a clever twist on chile rellenos. Stop by soon as there are only a few weeks left!

“Feminine Mystique” is a groundbreaking, multi-disciplinary showcase of the magic, beauty and power of Women, and the ethereal, shifting ideal that can never be fully grasped. “Feminine Mystique.” The words by themselves conjure up images of beauty and wonder and have been perfectly captured in the paintings of Barbara Fritsche, the multi-media creations of Michael Kluch, the sculptures of Tanya Ragir and the costumes & photography of Mary Cheung.

“Treasures From the 21st Century” features master-sculptor Larry Schuster, whose museum quality works reflect a rare and magnificent vision. This vision transports us to a time and place of grandeur and transcendence, a place beloved by kings and empire builders. His life’s work primarily explores three avenues: the Mythological & Archetypal, Nature as Master Engineer and Artist and a Paradoxical Response to Plato’s Theory of Forms.
