My husband and I love a great margarita and officially give The Blind Pig Kitchen and Bar’s Mexican Firing Squad our cocktail vote.  While not a traditional margarita, your taste buds will be inspired by this drink made from El Jimador tequila, lime, soda, bitters and a house-made grenadine.

The Blind Pig Kitchen and Bar’s menu is something to be celebrated.  It is a refreshing change to find a restaurant that veers from the traditional and allows their chef to share their creative talents.  When looking for an appetizer, try the Mushroom Ceviche that is expertly crafted from charred scallions, sour grapes, chile guero and taro chips.  And ask for more taro chips because they are incredible!

The menu at The Blind Pig Kitchen and Bar in Rancho Santa Margarita is filled with incredible dishes that are perfect for sharing.  It is impossible to pick just one item to enjoy while dining so order a few items to share and enjoy.  The Beet Salad is divine with gold beets, a cumin-guava vinaigrette, sharp cheddar, watercress, hibiscus compressed maui onion, and pistachio granola topping.  I have a tree nut allergy and enjoyed this even without the topping. A must try for certain!

The chef at The Blind Pig Kitchen and Bar displays his talents in expert fashion with their Bone Marrow.  The pickled figs compliment this dish perfectly as does the maytag bleu cheese, smoked shallot marmalade and toast.  Don’t hesitate in trying this dish because it is a creation that all should try at least once.
