The new businesses at the Canyons at Cimarron, in northwest El Paso, offer a little hope in this time of COVID. The Overpour is one of the latest openings, a low-lit wine-whiskey-and-cigars sort of spot that also serves up satisfying noshes to go alongside. Order this to go: The Adult Grilled Cheese is filled with fontina and apples and crisped to perfection. Charcuterie boards have been a go-to dinner for many during the pandemic, and these are bigger and better than most. The Italian version features prosciutto, coppa, and Parmesan, while the Spanish board delivers succulent serrano ham, chorizo, and Manchego cheese. The bourbon margarita with Cointreau is the ultimate specialty cocktail. Pro tip: Call about an hour in advance and your order will be ready for you upon arrival. Order a red velvet cupcake for the road and break all the rules regarding dessert before dinner.
