Taberna Mexicana is now open in the heart of Beverly Hills with the promise of a thoroughly unique interpretation of the traditional Mexican dining experience.
Executive Chef Alex Padilla's diverse culinary background includes extensive years of formal training under some of the most revered chefs in the nation, including Nancy Oakes of famed San Francisco eatery Boulevard. In addition, Chef Padilla spent time researching and honing his craft in Mexico and Europe, bringing this cross-regional and generational flair to each presentation on the Taberna menu. Signature selections include a wide range
of Ceviches, Cochinita Pibil, Pumpkin Seed Crusted Scallops, Lamb Shank Marinated with Pasilla Chiles, Pasta with Mussels, Squid and Shrimp, Prime Rib with Mole Rub, Sopa De Albondigas, and a selection of taco plates, including Braised Duck Tacos.
The unique and flavorful menu is highlighted by an equally clever and artful design. The restaurant space, designed by Phoenix-based architect and design firm Bar Napkin Productions, seamlessly fuses a casually sophisticated dining atmosphere with a lively lounge scene. With design details that pay tribute to classic Mexican cultural elements, a vibrant color scheme, and custom designed lighting accents and furnishings, this 4,200-square-foot space offers flavor for all the senses. Taberna Mexicana has indoor and patio seating for 110, including 12 bar stools, 22 inside tables, and six outside tables.
Join Taberna Mexicana for a Happy Hour fiesta Monday through Friday from 4-7 p.m., with $6 Margaritas, $5 glasses of wine, and $4 Mexican beers.
Valet parking is available.
