Seasonal Fun


Nozomi by Esperanza

Tuesdays, December 6, 13 and 27
  • Nozomi, meaning hope, is Esperanza’s ode to the long-standing tradition of Japanese explorers who would brave the elements to cross the Pacific in hopes of a better life in La Baja. This sumptuous culinary experience comprises a series of delicate courses based on Japanese techniques, elaborated with the best elements from land and sea from Baja California. Following the nomadic tradition of the original Japanese sailors who visited Baja, Nozomi is served as a multi-course Omakase menu (chef’s choice), featuring ingredients hailing from different ports of call around the peninsula, resulting in Japanese classics like miso broth infused with Magdalena Bay crab, as well as the day’s selection of organic vegetables, seafood, poultry and grass fed meats slowly cooked in our hibachi.

  • Fuego Terrace | 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm

  • À la carte and four-course Omakase
