What is Chile Nogada? Chile Nogada is a traditional dish that is served to commemorate Mexican Independence.The Chile Nogada is made up of a poblano pepper stuffed with ground meat, dried fruit and nuts. It can be battered and fried, then covered in a white walnut sauce and topped with pomegranate seeds, parsley and walnuts to represent the red, green and white colors of the Mexican flag.

We’re also collecting new and gently used costumes for the McPherson Library’s Fall Harvest event, so please bring them if you have them!

This event will take place outside in our tent and throughout the outdoor patio. Regular brunch and dinner service will be available inside the restaurant. Reservations for regular brunch and dinner service will be available inside only during the event.
