Well-known restaurateur and Casa Sol y Mar owner Diane Powers wanted to capture the spirit of the Mexican culture in all facets, including food and authentic flavors with a contemporary twist. From the painted walls and hand-woven Oaxacan fabrics, to the art and accessories on the wall made by contemporary Mexican craftsmen, she also wanted to have the interior depict the color and artistry of Mexico.

The entire family can enjoy the healthy menu selections at Casa Sol y Mar. Nearly everything on the menu is fresh and made from scratch, including the salsas and tortillas. “We have many vegetarian and gluten-free selections, as well as a new healthy creations menu,” says Powers. “We’re constantly working on healthy items with tons of flavors, made with ingredients found in Mexico.” In addition to their deliciously appealing entrée salads and vegetarian selections, they’ve recently introduced a new healthy creations menu, which has six new and flavorful entrees, all under 650 calories, including several gluten-free options. Casa Sol y Mar has contemporary and upscale environment, boasting a beautiful patio and outdoor dining. “We want people to feel like they’ve taken a trip to Mexico when they come here,” Powers says. “We’ve done our best to make the restaurant appealing to everyone!” (www.casasolymar.com) Family Dining
