It was 2012. Joel Zarate and his wife wanted a restaurant that tasted and felt like traditional Mexican food. So they hung colorful Mexican folk art on the walls, turned up the Mariachi music and packed the menu with the foods that reminded them of their homeland: tangy tomatillos, rich black beans, fiery chiles.
And that’s how it’s been ever since. Not that we haven’t changed. We change all the time, adding new authentic flavors to our menus and developing new relationships with the community. But at the end of the day, no matter how inventive our techniques or local our ingredients, our food still transports you to the same place: the colorful, vibrant kitchens of Mexico.
