    TheStory of Mesa


    Chef Raul and Olga Reyes come from Alvarado, Veracruz, a town built on a mile-wide strip of land with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and a brackish lagoon on the other. With the bounty of the sea close at hand, fresh seafood is a way of life in Alvarado. But Veracruz is also home to wild boar and turkey, to vanilla orchids and cacao, to tropical fruits and a rainbow of chiles. For nearly five hundred years, the cuisine of Alvarado has evolved through the influence of indigenous, Spanish, French and African cultures in the port city. It is this food that Raul and Olga brought to Dallas with their former restaurant, La Palapa Veracruzana, which the Dallas Observer named the Best Mexican Restaurant in Dallas and that Pegasus News called “fresh, flavorful, unique…a destination for people who like to eat food and talk about it a lot afterwards.” Mesa offers the same authentic coastal cuisine Raul and Olga have been cooking and eating since their childhood!

    • New flare on traditional Mexican dishes. The food was well developed, vibrant to taste and pleasing to the eye. My plate looked more like art rather than a regular dish. Exceptional customer service and great ambiance.

    • Once inside the restaurant, I was truly surprised by its simple but tasteful decor and the terrific menu. I had the salmon and it was outstanding. I believe that it was truly the work of a chef. Service was very good. I would make trek back to Oak Cliff for a repeat experience.
