THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tintorera Restaurant Review

: Chef Maycoll Calderón (Mexico City's Huset) is behind Tintorera, a seafood-centric, modern Mexican restaurant in Silver Lake. Décor includes an outdoor oasis surrounded by greenery and illuminated by strung lights and pendant lanterns, with bright blue cement tiles and rustic wood tables and chairs. Booths, stools and lamps are custom-designed by partner Walter Meyenberg and made by Taller Nacional in Mexico. A luxe indoor speakeasy pays homage to Acapulco's golden era of the 1950s. Calderón brings his signature "cocina de campo" (country kitchen) style of Mexican cooking from Huset to Los Angeles, with a refined menu that emphasizes crudo and raw plates alongside roasted fish and meat dishes. Look for a robust mezcal selection, spiked homemade horchata and Mexican tropics-inspired cocktails served outside; the indoor speakeasy features a separate craft cocktail menu as well as a limited food menu.
