Guadalajara WILL do!

It seems I am always the one to plan an outing with friends.  So, when an old friend contacted me to make plans for a couple’s night out, I was relieved to leave it to her.  That relief waned a bit when she told me we had reservations at a Mexican restaurant in Briarcliff.  We had eaten Mexican a few weeks prior, and when one is watching one’s weight, Mexican food should probably not be eaten too often.

However, we were content to hop in the car and head up the Hutch to 287 to Route 9 to see our friends, and try this place we had never been to.  Well…we pulled up to the beautiful structure that is Guadalajara, and right away, we could tell it would not disappoint.

Some of our impressions were:

*  Beautiful decor and Ambiance.  The restaurant is recently refurbished, and is like an eclectic hacienda.  Rustic interior is highlighted with vintage crystal chandeliers.  The tables (and chairs) are substantial, so you can sit back and literally relax.  The ambiance itself is warm and inviting – but lively due to the talented Mariachi Band members who make their rounds throughout the restaurant, singing requests and several renditions of “Feliz Compleanos”.

*  Good guacamole.  Upon ordering up your guac, a waiter arrives table-side with his guacamole cart.  Y

ou are asked if you want a single or double (one or two avacados), and if you want “spicy”.  We ordered the double, and spicy.  It was not really spicy enough, so we ordered another single, with more jalapeno, and it was perfect.

*  Reaaaaallly good salsa.  I am a salsa freak.  It has to be fresh, and it has to be so good that I want to hook up an intravenous line.  It was that good…

*  Middle-of-the-Road Margaritas.  The Margaritas were delicious.  I call them middle-of-the-road, as there was just enough alcohol, so that I could reasonably enjoy more than one, without being thrown for a loop.  I love Margaritas, and its nice to be able to have more than one.

*  Good quality food.  I had the Carne Asada, which came with a soft chicken taco with mole sauce, and of course, the traditional rice and refried beans.  I ate every bite, and enjoyed it.  The skirt steak was cooked perfectly, and the mole sauce on the chicken was not overpowering to the taco itself.

We had such a good time, that we ended up leaving our table and staying at the bar for an extra hour.  Therefore, our trip to the river for a Mexican meal at Guadalajara is one I would take again and again.  And next time, I might even make the plans myself!!
