While King Chili Pepper may sound like the title of a movie available behind a beaded curtain at the back of a video store, it's actually chef Scott Keefer's showcase of the versatility of chilies. Some highlights from the menu include fried panela cheese with mirasol chili sauce and corn salsa; salt cod croquetas with aioli, capers and pickled cubanelle chilies; grilled swordfish pinchos with orange and cascabel chili sauce; and chocolate and ancho chili creme brulee for dessert. Yum!
