ABOUT TALLULA’S

Tallula’s is a coastal Mexican restaurant from Rustic Canyon Family partners Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan. We’re housed in a former Tex-Mex restaurant that Josh and Zoe used to frequent as kids, so a lot of fond memories were made here, with many future ones to come! We’re open every day for dinner, with happy hour from Monday-Friday and weekend brunch.

THE FOOD & DRINKS

Located just steps from the beach, our menu focuses on sustainably-caught seafood, alongside seasonal vegetables, a variety of tacos on organic, heirloom Masienda corn tortillas made with our own masa, and more.

Born in Cuernavaca, Executive Chef Juan Robles showcases different regions of his native Mexico through comforting dishes that showcase the very best, organic ingredients from the nearby Santa Monica Farmers’ Market and from regional fishers, farmers and ranchers whose responsible practices give back to the ocean and land. He and the team also make 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.

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! Bartender Mink Dang and Bar Consultant Stephanie Reading (currently the Bar Manager at our sister Birdie G’s) 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.
