"Kind of obsessed with all the tasty circles at Espita. I think I'm going to have to eat a tlayuda when I go in to work tomorrow... Or maybe a beautiful fish taco. The flounder looked perfect when Jeff brought it by tonight."

"There's Rob, playing with a wagyu crudo again! Our Apache has been updated for spring. Featuring watercress, radishes, beef tendon, and some bright heat from fresnos & habaneros. I love this dish. Second shot: training the team."

"Gift for the team as they work on the summer bar menu! This little gem is an agave coyote (americana) from Sola de Vega. Hand macerated, clay pot still. To me it tastes of licorice, mint and leather. Super nice."
