Chef Gustavos Rios

Our Avocado Head Tilts are a play on everyone’s favorite avocado toast but with a Mexican and Napa Valley twist by combining Chile de Arbol and Chile de Guajilo with edible flowers. I love creating plant forward dishes, as it’s a creative way to showcase the best fresh, local ingredients. A lot of Mexican food is corn based, so I have fun coming up with vegan and naturally gluten free dishes with this heritage ingredient.

Chef José Alvarez

Having a vegan taco is important because it gives us a chance to work with a wider range of ingredients than just proteins. It’s exciting to showcase vegetables where you would expect a piece of meat or fish. Vegan tacos offers guests menu items with lower carbon, water and ecological footprints than meat and fish.  We try to incorporate as many local and seasonal ingredients in our dishes as we can, such as the Canol sweet potatoes and cilantro are local from Frutos del Guacabo.
