With 11 Tocaya Organica locations across Southern California and Arizona, The Madera Group is ready to unveil their first outpost in Westwood. Opening Friday, February 22 at 1122 Gayley Avenue #101B in a 3,000 square foot space, the new restaurant embraces Tocaya’s ethos of modern simplicity, with an open floorplan, plenty of lounge seating, and a 700 square foot patio. Westwood will be the 12th location of the rapidly expanding brand which is slated to have a total of 19 stores open by the end of this year.
To celebrate the grand opening, and as a neighborhood appreciation day for locals and local businesses, Tocaya Westwood will be hosting ‘First Round’s on Us’ all day on Saturday, March 2. Guests’ first two tacos are free with any purchase of a beverage, side, or entrée (upcharges apply for premium proteins).
Using locally-sourced organic ingredients, Tocaya Organica’s versatile menu takes a unique vegan-first approach to salads, tacos, bowls and burritos, while giving non-vegans the ability to opt in with their choice of grass-fed meat, free-range chicken and fish that is fresh, never frozen. Seasonal specials include the recently added Keto Bowl, as well as theSpanish Cauliflower Rice and Diablo Cauliflower sides. Tocaya also serves aguas frescas and juices as well as margaritas, beer and wine for those looking to imbibe.
The new restaurant is daily for lunch and dinner from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
