Casa Escobar : Westlake Village – A Mexican Companion for Big Reds

2809 Agoura Rd
Westlake Village

It’s not on the menu, but order “Russel’s Nachos”, the owner’s namesake dish that the servers and kitchen know by heart. It is the perfect foil for a big, powerful red, made with grilled filet mignon, that is perfectly caramelized, with almost raw sweet onions and a mix of cheeses. Exactly what that big red demands. If you bring your own red, they have a reasonable corkage and good glasses. If you want one of Russel’s red stash, they have some key bargain buys in a big red, including the BV Tapestry Meritage or Hess Allomi Cabernet.
