Richard Sandoval may have trademarked the term "modern Mexican cuisine," but he's celebrating the past with a week's worth of specials to commemorate the 2010 Mexican Bicentennial -- the 200th anniversary of the independence movement, which overlaps with El Grito on September 16.
Both outposts of La Sandia Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar -- in Northfield and at Park Meadows -- are offering three courses for $20.10: grilled shrimp huarache, pork carnitas tacos al Jalisco, and abuelita chocolate cake. There are also twenty flights of tequila available for $10 each.
