Hispanic Heritage Month: La Mesa Mexican Restaurant
OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) – As we continue to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, we’re highlighting an ever-changing Mexican restaurant.
You may have heard of the local favorite, La Mesa Mexican restaurant.
But as 3 News Now host Vanessa Villafuerte shows us, what you might not know is how the local channel started with a big dream rooted in Mexico decades ago.
If you are looking to immerse yourself in the experience of traditional Mexican cuisine, La Mesa may be the place for you.
“From a culinary perspective, La Mesa has never been afraid to innovate,” said Jose Salazar, co-owner of La Mesa. “We never had to say that we were going to stop changing, we always want to make it happen.”
Salazar said the restaurant is directly inspired by Mexico. However, they are always looking to add a fresh and new touch to every dish they serve.
“Over time, we have diversified our menus and challenged our guests to try something different,” said Salazar.
Besides the mouthwatering food, Salazar said it comes down to the immersive dining experience.
“We are trying to take this Mexican experience to a whole new level,” said Salazar. “From the tequilas we serve to the plates the food is served on, the chairs you sit on and the decorations.”
Salazar said La Mesa will only add more to his menu in the years to come.
“There is a huge sense of pride,” said Salazar. “But it’s also motivated by the challenge that we want, we want to continue to be humble, we want to continue to be the restaurant for people to come with their families and have a meal.”
La Mesa has several different locations around town.
