California: Casino Pauma opens new Mexican restaurant Lindo Valle Alex Groves, Press-Enterprise · October 18, 2020 at 4:33 pm Step inside the new Lindo Valle Mexican Grill at Casino Pauma in Pauma Valley and it feels a little bit like you’ve left Southern California and traveled to Mexico. Mexican folk art and photographs line cream-colored walls; chairs are upholstered with brightly colored sarape-like fabric; and ceramic decorations in every hue sit on beams overlooking cozy booths. But the look is only one part of the total package. The restaurant and the team behind want to whisk you away with the food and drinks as well. The restaurant, which specializes in Oaxacan food, opened Friday, Oct. 9, in space previously occupied by the casino’s Café.
