On June 4, Loteria Grill Hollywood presents a six-course fine dining tasting menu with unique paired Baja wines. Throughout the formal sit-down dinner, patrons will personally meet the chefs, learn the history of Mexican wine with a thoughtful presentation by art and food historian Maite Gomez-Rejon of Artbites, and listen to Latin beats spun by Raúl Campos from KCRW. The meal’s nine dishes will include Scallop Tostadas in Aguachile, Persian Cucumber and Picked Radish, Creamy Rise with Tecate Goat Cheese and Braised Lamb, and Classic filet of Tampiquena served with a Mole Poblano Enchilada and Peppers.
On June 5, Loteria Grill Santa Monica will hold a casual food fair featuring a variety of Mexican food stations by the two chefs, all indicative of Mexico’s street food and farm-to-table cooking. The stations will be paired with Baja wines, and wine expert Lui Hussong will be on hand to discuss tasting notes. Music will again be supplied by KCRW DJ Campos.
