De La Vega's

Kyle and I introduced Valorie to a Cruces jewel, the locally owned and operated De La Vega's Pecan Grill and Brewery (DLV).  DLV prepares a number of succulent menu items from scratch and specializes in the use of local seasonal ingredients including Salopek Farm pecans and Hatch green chile.  Their bar boasts 50 specialty cocktails, seven house liquors, 12 house brews and an extensive wine list, which consists of several New Mexico grown selections.  For a more casual dining experience, DLV offers outdoor seating and a gorgeous sunset view on their Back Porch.  To top everything off, DLV's live music, champagne Sunday brunch and two-for-one margarita nights can't be beat.  We've already made Val a fan.  Will you be next?
