As I'm delayed on a rainy Dallas morning while waiting to go to Phoenix to cover Rangers spring training (for more on what I am looking forward to seeing in Surprise, read the Monday Memo) I'm longing for some quality beach time.
Cabo San Lucas is always a perfect, easy getaway from Dallas. In fact, I helped a Rangers executive with a Cabo itinerary for himself and his wife after the 2012 season. On that list, and many subsequent lists for friends, was Flora Farms. This is a wonderful restaurant that is worth the bumpy drive. Much of their produce is grown onsite and their seasonal menu is outstanding. In addition to their unique restaurant, they have a great market.
Okay, so I didn't encounter Clooney, Keller or a lengthy wait at dinner on my multiple visits. What we did find was a delicious vegetable plate, excellent meats, amazing cocktails, fresh salsa and a half dozen friendly dogs more than happy to take your table scraps.
This is beautiful Baja Sur California dining at its best. It's also a wonderful experience for kids. My daughter, Jordan, enjoyed walking through the orchards. If you're headed to the Cabo San Lucas area, definitely pay Flora Farms a visit.
