Modern Mexican at the Beach

Article excerpt

The former Marix space on Entrada Drive in Santa Monica is now easygoing Mexican spot Tallula's, from the owners of Rustic Canyon and Milo & Olive. Prices are Westside-high, but the celebrity beach crowd is already popping in for cocktails with South-of-the-border influences like the Avocado-lada, with rum and pineapple, and the Hibiscus Refresco, with prickly pear brandy and sloe gin. Dishes like duck confit chilaquiles and birria-style lamb with chickpeas, black beer and hominy incorporate seasonal, organic produce and premium meats. Plenty of fresh seafood helps keep the menu light: Try yellowtail ceviche with avocado; sea scallops with sprouting broccoli and Rancho Gordo beans; or swordfish tacos.
