Baja Lobster Co. – LCM 38 FALL 2014

bajalobster-1-300x200

There’s no mystery about the spe- cialty of the house at this elegant seaside eatery, located in the Marina Golden Zone near Luxury Avenue. Top billing goes to the king of seafood—“Lobster” is its middle name, after all—which is served in a wide variety of delicious dishes. Start with a hearty bowl of lobster bisque; lobster salad served with arugula, lettuce, and yellow pepper, and drizzled with an aromatic cilantro dressing; or an order of lob- ster tacos cooked with tomato and basil, then artfully presented in a banana leaf. Then tuck in your bib and ready your cracker and long, tiny tined fork for more lobster— prepared grilled, steamed, or gar- lic—and served in signature styles like traditional lobster Thermidor (a fin-de-siècle favorite of several leg- endary French chefs) and Lobster San Lucas, an original recipe execut- ed to perfection by on-site chef Eliseo A. Arbez. Lukewarm on lob- ster? Fear not. There are several excellent entrée alternatives, includ- ing a lovely lemon chicken marinat- ed in lemon, honey, and parsley as well as a prime cut of filet mignon topped with mushroom sauce. Wine pairing options are available by the glass or bottle, with many selections from premium producers in Napa

Valley and Baja’s wine country, Valle de Guadalupe. Baja Lobster Co. is part of the Marina Fiesta all- inclusive dining family, but an à la carte menu featuring all of the above items is available for walk- in guests. Marina Golden Zone, Cabo San Lucas, (624) 145-6011, www.goldenzonecabo.com. Daily 11 a.m.–11 p.m. All major credit cards and vouchers accepted. $$–$$$ C.S.
