Los Cabos Magazine | Summer 2016 93 DINING lunch, kids, sushi, dinner, and dessert menus—and the lunch menu offers a suitably eclectic introduction to the restaurant’s voluminous charms. Dozens of terrific sandwich and hamburger options are crafted daily, including the delectable fresh tuna medallion cooked rare or medium and topped with arugula and tasty, delicate cilantro sauce. Margaritas, mojitos, and frosty cold ones are the perfect accompaniments to the nomadic groups of charro-clad mariachis singing songs of love and revolution in the Mexican afternoon. They also tend to get along nicely with the restaurant’s killer ceviche and organic salad with lettuce, cherry tomatoes, fresh mango, tangerine wedges, hearts of palms, fresh mozzarella, feta cheese, and Solomon’s signature passion fruit dressing. Looking for something a little more traditionally Mexican? Specialty items like burritos, enchiladas, tacos, and quesadillas offer delicious entries into Baja cuisine. Cabo San Lucas Marina (behind Tesoro resort), Cabo San Lucas, (624) 143-3050, www.solomon slandingcabo.com. Daily 7 a.m.–11 p.m. Discover, Master- Card, Visa, and vouchers accepted. $–$$$ C.S.

Burgers and banana splits are available for homesick gringos, and kids can nosh on fish sticks and chicken fingers. For Mexican-style dessert, dig into decadent meal cappers like flan con dulce de leche (caramel custard), duraznos en almibar con rompope (peaches in syrup with eggnog liqueur), and nieve con duraznos (ice cream and peaches). Sporting events are shown day and night on flat-screen TVs around the large, airy bar and dining area, which is framed by brick pillars and polished wooden tables.
