I visited Mutu’s on a Sunday evening around 7:45. There was a 20-minute wait inside, and a shorter wait to sit outside, but because I was alone (on business) and wanted to see the NBA finals game 7, I chose to sit at the bar where a TV was located. I was quickly greeted by the bartender, who was making drinks, and she gave me a menu.
I ordered a local tap beer, Mexican Logger (by SKA Brewing of Durango), field greens, and Penne Arrabbiata with added shrimp. I enjoyed the beer, which despite being light in color had a good flavor (similar to Pacifico). The field greens (see picture) came out and was a larger portion than I expected, including a couple of generous tomato wedges, a cucumber slice (through the length of a small cucumber), greens, cheese, and a good vinaigrette dressing. Some Italian bread slices also came out with something that looked like orange butter, and it was very tasty.
As I was finishing the salad, my main dish came out (see picture). The Penne Arrabbiata (the menu has it spelled “Aribiata”) had slices of kalamata olives on top, as well as nice chunks of tomatoes. The penne was essentially al dente, and the combination of flavors with the added shrimp made for a wonderful dish.
The entire time I sat at the bar, I talked to a couple of bartenders as well as a couple of patrons (the bar was fairly empty while I was there), and it made for an enjoyable meal on a business trip. I can’t speak for the service one might receive if seated at a table, but this particular evening the bar was a good choice.
