Think you know Mexican?
We skip burritos altogether, and go well beyond tacos and tamales to bring you food that is festive in its color and flavor: Traditional or Modern Mexican menus, tortillas made by hand right in front of your guests from locally-milled corn masa, hand-thrown, hand-painted dinner plates, mouth-blown glassware, and woven table linens-- a mestizo of Mexican culinary traditions with the Bay area's farm-to-table ingredients-- simply, the best of both worlds. Everything is made from scratch in our kitchens: we cure our own beef to make Cecina, make our own Chorizo and adobados, and pickle our own veggies for escabeche, honoring the traditions of generations of Mexican cooks.
Discover fish wrapped in banana leaf, Comida Afrancescada (the fusion of Mexican and French cuisine born of the France's 5-year occupation of Mexican in the mid 1800's), over a dozen different moles, meats marinaded in complex adobados--- and did you know that the traditional masa used in most Mexican cooking is corn-based/gluten-free?

We use locally-raised, sustainably-farmed produce, poultry, beef and seafood, AND BUY FROM BUSINESSES WHO do the same. Whenever available, we source organic ingredients.
Apoyo is one of those words that defies translation. Literally, it means "support"; but in Mexico it means much, much more. Neighbors work together to actually build their communities' infrastructure, extended families cooperate to make the fiestas that mark life's important moments, like weddings and baptisms, financially possible, and extended families provide support that the government doesn't. In that same spirit, we work with our immediate community and in Mexico.
We donate 2% of catering proceeds to One Heart World-Wide, a not-for-profit whose mission is saving the lives of women and infants in need, one birth at a time; because "every mother deserves a baby to cradle, not a tiny body to bury". .
We donate leftover food to FOOD RUNNERS, a volunteer organization dedicated to alleviating hunger in San Francisco.
