If you want to celebrate Cinco de Mayo in style, head to Lobo restaurant. To commemorate Mexican independence day (and introduce their new Tex-Mex menu), owners Sean Patterson and David Schneider are offering a $19.95 prix-fixe dinner. The three-course special includes an appetizer, such as grilled jumbo shrimp with tequila sauce or chicken quesadillas with mole poblano; a main course, such as chicken-fried steak or BBQ ribs and chicken; and one of their homemade desserts, such as vanilla flan, churros or Mexican brownies. They’re all tweaked with bold flavors and a Texas twist. Wash it all down with $3 Coronas.

But before ordering, though, definitely imbibe one of Lobo’s celebrated infused tequila drinks (pictured). Made from Partida-estate tequila, Patterson offers tequilas with ginger, strawberry, jalapeno, cinnamon, and ancho chile infusions. The most-popular drink is the blood orange Margarita.

Lobo has two locations - one in Cobble Hill and one in Park Slope - and Partida representatives will give away Cinco de Mayo goodies at both.

The Court St. location will be opening its garden on May 1. Patterson believes his restaurants are popular among both celebrities (Boerum Hillers Heath and Michelle, and Slopers Jennifer and Paul have been in) and non-celebrities because "It’s not a ’scene’ just a comfortable place." No matter who shows up, his focus is on the food.

Lobo/Park Slope (188 Fifth Ave. at Sackett Street, [718] 636-8886) accepts American Express, Mastercard and Visa. Hours are 5-11 pm, Sunday through Wednesday; 5-midnight on Thursday; 5 pm-1 am Friday and Saturday. Brunch on weekends.

Lobo/Cobble Hill (218 Court St. at Warren Street, [718] 858-7739) accepts cash only. Hours are 10 am-11 pm Sunday through Wednesday; 10 am-midnight on Thursday; 10-1 am Friday and Saturday.
