Where we've featured it
If you still haven’t ordered from Madre’s new West Hollywood location, now’s the time to go pick up some dinner. It will be the perfect excuse to try some of their tremendous cocktails to-go. You’ll have three different options - the house margarita, a mezcal margarita with chile liqueur, and, our favorite, the Chapo & Kate, a tequila-based drink with prickly pear liqueur and cucumber that’s sweet, cool, and spicy. They come in servings of up to 12 - or, enough to get one person through an entire weekend in quarantine. They’ve got locations in Torrance and Palms, too, if those are more convenient. Order online here.
All three of Madre’s locations - Torrance, West Hollywood, and Palms - have reopened for outdoor dining. That means plenty of space for cecina memelas, mole bowls, and some of the best mezcal cocktails in town.
Madre is a fantastic Oaxacan restaurant that started in Torrance and recently opened a new location on Fairfax. The expansive menu features everything from mole bowls to pozole to chorizo memelas, plus fantastic cocktails to go. If you’re looking to feed the whole family, they also offer different meal kits and group packages. Available for takeout and delivery.
The West Hollywood location of the excellent Oaxacan spot Madre will be offering a five-course prix fixe for $45 per person, including a cocktail and options like tortilla soup, linguine with crema and salsa morita, pollo en barbacoa, and more. There are also a whole bunch of batch seasonal winter cocktails. Order online 24 hours in advance for 12/23 or 12/24 pick-up (and delivery within three miles).
The original Madre! in Torrance is one of our favorite Oaxacan restaurants in the city - and now, after a few months of running a limited-menu soft opening, their Weho location is making its debut. The menu makes use of the wood-fired pizza oven in the kitchen from the previous tenants for dishes like pescado sarandeado (flayed, whole-cooked fish), lamb barbacoa, and costillas with salsa Madre. They’re also bringing hundreds of bottles from their extensive mezcal collection, perhaps the best in Los Angeles. There’s outdoor dining for now, and a huge dining room for when restrictions are lifted.
