  1. Las Brisas is in a beautiful spot, but they are not enforcing safe practices. Food handlers were seen with masks below their nose, reusable menus are half- heartedly wiped down by hostesses with their masks down, and tables outside are not even close to 6 feet apart. Went on June 18th. Such a shame…

    • Thank you for sharing so we can share this feedback with the restaurant.
