Tallula’s is an ingredient-driven, neighborhood Mexican restaurant located in Santa Monica Canyon just a few hundred feet from the beach. Josh and Zoe both grew up going to this location in its former incarnation as Marix Tex Mex, and long dreamed of doing their own personal project in this space. When the opportunity came up, they partnered with Rustic Canyon Chef/Co-owner Jeremy Fox, and are now fulfilling their dream of having a neighborhood Mexican restaurant that sources its ingredients from the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market as well as using organic dairy and other top quality products. Tallula’s also has a great bar focused on Agave-based spirits and fresh market produce and well-curated wine and beer lists paired to match the flavors of the food. Tallula’s is a place to gather with friends and loved ones and enjoy wonderful flavors and great drinks.


The kitchen at Tallula’s is overseen by Rustic Canyon’s Jeremy Fox. A love for great ingredients and passion for cooking is translated into a menu full of rich bold flavors and imaginative takes on familiar Mexican dishes. The seasonally inspired menu sources ingredients from the local farmers market and other local purveyors the chef knows and trusts. Desserts are created by Zoe Nathan and Laurel Almerinda and focus on deeply satisfying, ingredient driven takes on classic Mexican sweets.
