‘Jaws,’ Mex­i­can style

Los Angeles Times - - FOOD & DINING -

Sil­ver Lake has a new, mostly out­door res­tau­rant, opened by a Mex­ico City chef and his part­ner, and named af­ter a scary blue shark. Tin­tor­era, the new Mex­i­can res­tau­rant by chef May­coll Calderón and his part­ner Wal­ter Meyen­berg (the duo be­hind Huset and Hanky Panky bar in Mex­ico City) is now open in the former Cow­boys and Tur­bans space on Sun­set Boule­vard. Calderón, who has worked at Arzak in San Se­bas­tian and Jean-Ge­orges in New York City, is cook­ing his sig­na­ture Mex­i­can “country” food at Tin­tor­era, with a seafood-cen­tric menu that also cel­e­brates this city’s great pro­duce. Menu high­lights in­clude tuna tartare with a jalapeño emul­sion; ar­roz con pollo; sea bass tostada with cit­rus vinai­grette; and a red snap­per aguachile. All of the res­tau­rant’s seat­ing is out­doors on a large pa­tio with over­head string lights — and there’s a large mu­ral that de­picts the res­tau­rant’s name­sake blue shark. (The res­tau­rant is named af­ter the 1977 shark thriller “Tin­tor­era.”) Guests are served tropic-sin­spired cock­tails out­side, but there’s an in­door speakeasy fea­tur­ing a separate cock­tail menu by Mex­ico City bar­tender David Mora. The res­tau­rant is open for din­ner (with lim­ited reser­va­tions at info@tin­tor­era.la), and will eventually open for lunch and week­end brunch. Tin­tor­era, 2815 Sun­set Blvd., Los Angeles, tin­tor­era.la.
