Two words: Guac bar. What is there not to love about a guacamole bar and everything else at the stylishly fun and exuberant new restaurant from the all-star combo of chef Josh Capon and owner/partner John McDonald? Designed to great effect and channelling a modernist Mexican vibe, with many items thoughtfully selected over several years by McDonald on his travels, ETBs interiors evoke a sultry, chic nod to Tijuana’s past while also creating a vibrant warmth.
Check out all the touches in the tiled artwork, the framed vacation cards near the restaurant’s entrance, the matador paintings, and the ink drawing of Clint Eastwood--stylishly whimsy indeed. Get your appetite and your thirst sated with a bustling menu of delicious eats from ceviche to a variety of tacos and platos fuertes, plus some truly smooth tequila options.
What Capon and McDonald do so well is to understand and extend a hospitality and graciousness that make patrons feel welcome, feel good, feel happy and satisfied, and feel that they are right where they should be on any given evening.
