May 22, 2020 – Incredibly excited to be back eating inside a restaurant! For our inaugural dine-out sesh we went to Nuevo Grill & Cantina. They were among the small handful of restaurants in Ramona to have quickly adopted the new normal in accordance with San Diego County guidelines. Their ‘rona protocol was seamless and professional. In fact after being seated you really couldn’t tell anything was different. Other than there being absolutely nothing to touch on the tables. I remember I used to enjoy fiddling with the hanging happy hour menu thing. It was probably a petri dish so it’s just as well not to have it there.
Anyway, I ordered a carne asada enchilada lunch special that was outstanding. Full of their tender and flavorful char-grilled steak. One of my go-to faves here that I’ve ordered for many years. I was also thrilled to be indulging in their award winning chips & salsa. Paired perfectly with a nice, cold draft beer. Something I haven’t been able to enjoy since March 16. The service and overall experience today at Nuevo Girl was just terrific.
