Elote Cafe Restaurant Review

: At Sedona's Elote Cafe, chef Jeff Smedstad serves cuisine inspired by fifteen years of travels through Mexico. Elote's elegant food is enhanced with local wines, cheeses and produce. Favorites like guacamole are found alongside more unique offerings like smoked pork cheeks served with cascabel chile sauce, corn cake and buttermilk cumin drizzle. Other main courses might include lamb adobo, carnitas and house-smoked chicken in a Puebla-style mole. The restaurant also serves its signature elote, a fire-roasted corn served with spicy mayonnaise, lime and cotija cheese. After dinner, indulge in desserts like pumpkin flan or homemade Mexican chocolate ice cream. Elote also features tasting flights of top-shelf 100 percent agave Mexican tequilas.
