Few restaurants understand their own sense of purpose better than Peacock’s, a gem in the heart of Cabo San Lucas’s Médano Beach District. The restaurant is sprawling—dine indoors, outdoors, or around a fire pit—but its menu is decidedly compact, market driven, and whimsical. The menu is so centered on freshness that the restaurant sprouts its own greens on-site. Several produce items are grown at Peacock’s own farm in nearby Pescadero, and local fishermen catch almost all of its seafood. The menu changes regularly, but recent highlights include scallop carpaccio, shrimp with a ricotta-spinach stuffing and squash blossom sauce, and steak in mole sauce. Paseo del Pescador, near the entrance to ME Cabo, Cabo San Lucas, (624) 143-1858, www.peacocksrestaurant.com. Nightly 5 p.m.–11:30 p.m. AmEx, MasterCard, and Visa accepted.
