We recently ate at the Coyote Rose in North Conway; they just opened in January in a space that was formerly occupied by a casual Italian place. The Coyote Rose serves creative Southwestern cuisine and I had one of the best meals I've ever had in a long time. The wine list is short but interesting with many choices by the glass, several riojas and a wonderful red from Chile which I had. They started us off with these thin, homemade corn cakes served warm with homemade salsa. For an appetizer, I had a shitake mushroom soup with ginger (yes, I know, it doesn't sound very southwestern but it was great). My husband had seared scallops in a mango salsa. We were then served pomegranate and peppercorn sorbet with star fruit and jicama--out of this world. Everything was incredibly fresh. We were also served homemade blue and yellow cornbread with a mole butter. Dinner was duck grilled on pecan wood with a prickly pear chiplote sauce; it was fantastic. My husband had a T-bone steak cooked perfectly. We had a dessert trilogy of espresso flan, dark and white chocolate pie and a fallen chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. The chocolate cake had a hint of pasilla pepper which gave a little afterburn but really made the dessert unique and tasty--it was my favorite of the trilogy. Sorry this is so long but this was such a great meal.
