MOSS LANDING, Calif., — At her iconic restaurant in Moss Landing, Kim Solano and her Family have always pushed the ideas of community, sustainability and inclusivity.
As its full name suggests, everyone is welcome to enjoy the eclectic experiences at The Haute Enchilada Cafe, Gallery & Social Club.
Closed for weeks due to the pandemic, Solano plans to re-open on Sept. 2 with an entirely new guest experience. A visit can easily begin at East of Eden, a cannabis dispensary that has opened adjacent to the restaurant.
Guests can start by perusing the menu of edibles, tinctures, topicals, vaporizers and concentrates at East of Eden, then venturing on to the Haute for a soon-to-be-famous High Iced Long Island Tea from the bar.
Then visitors can stamp their culinary passports in the comfort of Solano’s artful and whimsical property, where the menu is dotted with favorites from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and South America. Enjoy Sunday paella, prawns Ibiza, Peruvia ceviche, Mexican huitlacoche/seafood enchiladas, or a special item the Haute calls relleno Trotsky. And there’s always a pitcher of sparkling Malbec sangria (with fresh fruit) at the ready.
Initially, the Haute will only take to-go orders, due to the poor air quality from multiple wildfires in surrounding areas. Eventually, reservations will be required for a spot on the secluded, warm, dog-friendly patio. Hours are set from noon to 5 p.m., with to-go orders taken by 3 p.m. The Haute will be open for Labor Day, but otherwise is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
For guests wishing to extend their stay, cabins are available to book beginning Sept. 1.
Solano will closely monitor communications from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization and state and federal governments to help keep valued guests, community and team members safe. Haute Enchilada employees will follow strict hygiene guidelines, and wear masks at all times.
