Enjoy Live Jazz with Your Chimichanga- at Hermanos Cocina Mexicana

By Elisha Neubauer

Love Mexican food? At Hermanos Cocina Mexicana in Concord, NH, you can pair it with live jazz music. This locally owned establishment has been serving up award-winning Mexican cuisine for 31 years.

The restaurant has won its fair share of recognitions. It's been awarded New Hampshire Magazine's Best Mexican Restaurant and Best Margarita- and Hippo Press 2015's Best Cocktail and Best Burrito. Yankee Magazine gave it a shoutout for having the "best chimichangas," and The Boston Globe praised it for setting a new standard for Mexican food in the area.

And it's no wonder. Owner Jane Valliere says that the secret to all of this success is keeping food fresh and authentic- including never using a bottled margarita mix. "[They're] freshly made with hand-squeezed limes," Valliere says. "We are pleased to offer fresh ingredients from local farms from just-picked apples to pork, sausage and local vegetables."

The menu is vast and covers all the bases of your typical Mexican restaurant- and more. Bring your friends and dive into a platter of Hermanos Supreme Nachos- featuring beans, cheese, green chilies and guacamole- or try a variation, like Our Famous Chicken And Garlic Nachos. "We are well known for our chicken garlic nachos, our freshly grilled beef and vegetable quesadillas, delicious enchiladas and dozens of vegetarian and vegan entrees," Valliere says.

Hermanos is dietary-friendly for those who follow vegetarian and vegan meal plans. Additionally, each month features a special menu that is built around the local produce and meat that is available.

The restaurant's drink menu nearly matches its food menu in length. Hermanos offers everything from a Bloody Maria featuring jalapeno tequila to non-Latin beverages such as Cosmopolitans and Maple Martinis.

At Hermanos Cocina Mexicana, the atmosphere is about authentic food, great drinks and live music. The restaurant offers more live jazz music than any other establishment north of Boston, says Valliere. Six nights a week, guests can enjoy the live shows in the restaurant's upstairs lounge. To top it off, there's no cover charge. "We pride ourselves on presenting more live jazz than any restaurant in New Hampshire," Valliere says. "People can enjoy a margarita and dinner, and listen to some great music!"
