Would you be tempted to fall off your chair if I told you that the restaurant above is actually a small restaurant ancillary to a commissary, serving two street taco trucks? Surprised? I was too! Now I am no expert in Mexican restaurants but this is certainly not what I expected. Designer Omer Arbel has created a space that is laid-back, bright, earthy and dare I say almost beachy? Of course the first thing that catches your eye is the incredible Arbel and Bocci chandelier made of blown glass orbs and planters of cacti suspended amidst a tangle of copper tubing. It’s definitely a conversation starter so I love that they have kept the rest of the room simple with benches made from reclaimed wood and strong clean lines.
I did a little bit of research and lost a good 30 minutes drooling over the scrumptious-looking food!
