Las Coronelas will only perform at Carriqui on Sundays, but Carriqui’s lunch menu will be available everyday. In keeping with Carriqui’s affinity for Texas-style meats drawing flavor from fire in its smokehouse, the restaurant’s lunch menu will feature items like the new Texas Brisket Pastrami on Rye, served with grain  mustard and homemade seasoned chips, and the Pecan Mole Enchiladas, served with Carriqui’s signature smoked achiote chicken, toasted sesame seeds, onion, queso fresco and rice and beans. Carriqui will also introduce the much anticipated La Fortaleza Burger, as a permanent feature on the lunch menu, made with beef from La Fortaleza and served with cheddar cheese, house pickles, new housemade seasoned chips and salad. Other favorites that are now available on the lunch menu include the Blackened Fish Tacos, Brisket Tacos and more.

“The team’s fired up about introducing a dedicated lunch menu at Carriqui,” said Chef Jaime Gonzalez, General Manager at Carriqui. “We’ve been listening to our guests’ feedback, and testing recipes as lunch specials and on Smokehouse Sundays – adding the lunch menu is part of our continuous evolution of the restaurant.”
