Sun Deck Bar & Restaurant at the Hotel Del Coronado Unrolls New Mexican Menu

Dark clouds scuttled over the skyline on Thursday evening, and cold breezes whipped up off the water, but the food on the Hotel Del Coronado's Sun Deck hadn't gotten the memo.

There, everything was sunny and bright. The menu sparkled with the warm flavors of summer, from the fresca pisco cooler at the beginning to the dulce de leche-stuffed churro at the end.

When my family and I arrived in Coronado last August, I made a beeline for the Coronado Library. I had good reason: we had just moved from a small military base in Sicily, Italy, with a very modest library with limited resources. A self-confessed library nerd, I had read about the Coronado Library and searched its online catalog multiple times before arriving on the island. I couldn't wait to see it in…
