Fuego’s Pride Brunch with Mariachi Arcoiris de Los Angeles

May 23, 2021 @ 11:30 am - 2:30 pm

Although many of Long Beach’s LGBTQ annual pride events will not be happening in May, Fuego at Hotel Maya will still celebrate a socially distanced pride with the world’s first LGBTQ mariachi band at Fuego’s famous Sunday Brunch. Mariachi Arcoiris de Los Angeles will perform on Sunday, May 23 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the seaside restaurant.

“Mariachi Arcoiris is a Fuego favorite and every time they play it is an event,” said Greg Guthrie, General Manager of the Hotel Maya. “They are incredible musicians, and our guests love their style and sound.”

Led by director Carlos Samaniego, Mariachi Arcoiris de Los Angeles has performed around the world to great acclaim. The group is proud to have the first transgender mariachi in the world, Natalia Melendez as part of the group. While the group performs its repertoire to suit the LGBTQ community, all audiences also enjoy their presentation. This unique ensemble was created as a safe haven for mariachi musicians who identify as LGBTQ to come together and perform traditional Mexican regional music in response to a “machista” and at times, discriminating subculture of the mariachi world.

For Fuego Brunch starters, Executive Chef Victor Juarez recommends the Caramelized Plantains with a chipotle rum glaze topped with a cinnamon whipped cream. In-house specialties include the Ropa Vieja, Cuban style braised short rib with a black bean purée, crisp corn tortillas, pickled cabbage, caramelized plantains, and serrano cream, and the Fuego Salad which combines baby greens, chili dusted pecans, goat cheese, heirloom tomatoes, cilantro, Fuji apples and a creamy chipotle dressing. The Chorizo Skilled & Fried Eggs includes fried potatoes, onion, peppers, tomatoes, cream fresca, and avocado sauce. Tacos include a Cilantro Lime Chicken with cilantro, onion, and tequila cream.

Fuego has one of the largest tequila offerings in Southern California. The mind-blowing Fuego Margarita is made from Reposado tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and agave nectar. Also popular is the Spicy Paloma made with house-infused jalapeño Reposado, and grapefruit and lime juice. Fuego’s refreshing Red or White Sangria is also available.
