We’re a coastal Mexican restaurant from Rustic Canyon Family partners Josh Loeb, Zoe Nathan and award-winning Chef Jeremy Fox (Birdie G’s, Rustic Canyon).

THE FOOD & DRINKS

Located just steps from the beach, the kitchen is overseen by Executive Chef Brad Long, a Long Beach native whose Mexican grandmother and mother had early culinary influences on him. Brad moved back to California in fall 2020 after cooking along the Southern seaboard at acclaimed restaurants like Husk and Shaya. His menu focuses on sustainably-caught seafood, alongside a variety of tacos on organic, heirloom Masienda corn tortillas made with our own masa, seasonal vegetables and more.

The team also makes fresh chile pastes, spice blends and salsas from scratch, and our corn tortillas were one of the top two in KCRW’s 2021 Annual Tortilla Tournament. With a focus on high-quality, organic ingredients, everything is sourced from the nearby Santa Monica Farmers’ Market and from regional fishers, farmers and ranchers whose responsible practices give back to the ocean and land.

The colorful bar, lounge and outdoor patio (aka “Felix’s Bar”) features an array of seasonal margaritas, creative riffs on Mexican and Tiki cocktails and housemade aguas frescas. We also have one of the largest collections of Mexican spirits on the Westside! Bar Consultant Stephanie Reading (currently the Bar Manager at Birdie G’s) and Bartender Mink Dang thoughtfully source spirits like tequila, mezcal, rum and lesser-known options like raicilla and sotol from small-batch producers in Mexico, alongside California craft beers. Rustic Canyon Family Wine Director Kathryn Coker curates the eclectic wine list that highlights boutique, planet-friendly producers from Mexico, Spain, Argentina, Portugal, California and more.
