Gracias Madre’s New Newport Beach Location is Now Open
Since first opening in 2014, Gracias Madre in West Hollywood has been an LA staple for plant-based Mexican cuisine. Now the brand has expanded with the opening of a second location in Orange County—Gracias Madre Newport Beach.
The Newport Beach menu features favorites from the flagship WeHo location including the bowls, flautas, tacos, and more, as well as a variety of exclusive items created by award-winning Chef Alan SaÌnchez LaÌzaro, who joins the team from Mexico City. His signature dishes include the Al Pastor Pineapple Tacos, Watermelon Carpaccio, and Churros with Dipping Chocolate.
“I'm drawn to the idea of adapting the authentic flavors and techniques of traditional Mexican cuisine to create new and innovative dishes that are still largely influenced by the customs, practices and heritage of my culture. Without tradition there is no evolution,” explains Chef Alan. “I want to dispel the notion that Mexican cuisine is just spices and tortillas – there is a whole story to each dish.”
Along with the food menu, Gracias Madre’s cocktail menu features organic, artisanal tequila and mezcal craft cocktails free of chemically-processed spirits. The Quinceanera, Purista, and So Fresa So Clean are just a few of the offerings available.
Gracias Madre Newport Beach is located at 1617 Westcliff Drive in Newport Beach and is open 11am to 10pm daily.
