Toca Madera, which translates to “knock on wood” in Spanish, hails from West Hollywood and now has several outposts in the US. Dine on traditional Mexican cuisine re-imagined with a small-plates menu including sustainable seafood, grass-fed beef and locally farm-sourced organic ingredients, along with vegan and gluten-free options. Some of the dishes currently offered at its West Hollywood flagship include the A La Roca with American wagyu beef, ensenada-style fish tacos, chipotle-dusted tofu tostadas, enchiladas de mole, and the popular churro ice cream sandwich.
Farm fresh and seasonal ingredients also serve as the foundation for the extensive craft cocktail list, served alongside the finest tequilas and mezcals. Design-wise expect a swanky, sultry departure from the traditional Mexican restaurant. Check back for more details.
