El Jefe offers culinary inspiration from the wonderfully diverse street food of Mexico by James Beard Award-winning Iron Chef Jose Garces.  Tasty dishes include:  Guacamole with mashed avocado, jalapeño, cotija cheese and house-made tortilla chips;  Ceviche de Huachinango, red snapper ceviche with green olive, red fresno chiles and tomato-lime vinaigrette;  Angelica’s Fresa, strawberry salad with spinach, melon, Cabrales and Serrano-balsamic vinaigrette;  Carnitas, pork tacos with smoky black beans and pineapple-habanero salsa;  and Camarones y Chorizo, shrimp and chorizo tacos with refried beans, tomato and radish.  Guests can enjoy the Coachella Valley’s largest tequila and mescal list with over 100 selections, available by the glass and also in flights for sampling.  Creative drink offerings include the Jefe, with Don Julio reposado, Combier and lime; Spanish Fly, fruit-infused tequila with lime and simple syrup, and Tequila Aviation, Espolon Blanco tequila with lemon, crème de violette and maraschino, as well as draught and bottled beers, Mexican sangrias and several wines by the glass.  El Jefe’s design brings the classic Western frontier bar so ubiquitous in many of our beloved vintage movies into the modern era featuring a muted color palette and reclaimed, rustic materials.  A continuous menu is served from 3 p.m. until midnight on Sunday through Thursday; on Fridays and Saturdays, the menu will be served until 2 a.m.
