Re: “Pancito & Lefty

I've actually been to P&L twice now: once for brunch with my husband and last Sunday for brunch with a group of folks from church. This is a group with scheduled monthly get-togethers, and this was our choice for July.

One of the things that attracted me to P&L for this gathering was the menu. We have several group members who have food allergies (gluten and dairy intolerance) and their choices were spot on for this. I corresponded with Jimmy and spoke with Jade and they assured me that any modifications needed to menu items could be accommodated. We ended up with a group of 12, which included three children, two under the age of 5.

To begin: our server didn't blink an eye when we asked for 5 separate checks. Also, there was no gratuity tacked on, which is smart, because we're better tippers than the typical pro-forma gratuity amount.

No one had any issues with food choices, though one of our party was surprised at how spicy the scallop seviche was (It's generally served with crema, which would moderate the heat, but she is the dairy-free member, so there's that). The food was tasty, served well, and paced well. Most of the table had the red pork posole, served over Masa grits with a fried egg on top. Yummy! The two littles had chocolate chip pancakes and wolfed them down. One of our number had the chilaquies and raved about them.

I'm really not sure why there are negative reviews of this place. Perhaps it's different at lunch and dinner, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and my experience in setting up the event was stellar. Kudos to Jimmy, Jade, our waitress (whose name I unfortunately did not get) and the manager on duty yesterday. I can heartily recommend P&L for your next group meet -- or date night!
