"Led by chef Scott Linquist, alongside the teams that brought us Coyo Taco and 1-800-LUCKY, the restaurant boasts an outdoor kitchen where diners watch ground cornmeal being shaped into tortillas and then turned into dishes like uni and crab tostadas, squash blossom quesadillas, and chorizo huaraches.
The menu also features classic dishes like Caesar salad, steak tartare, and tuna tartare, alongside ceviches, small plates, salads, burgers, and sandwiches."
