Co-owners Demi Stevens and chef Thomas Ortega pair farm-fresh Mexican cuisine with fine tequilas, prompting the Los Angeles Times to note that “Ortega120 is a cut above.” Each tequila flight includes taste-sized portions of three distinctive elixirs from Casa Noble, which earned gold, silver, and bronze medals at the 2011 San Francisco World Spirits’ Competition and is partially owned by musician Carlos Santana. Casa Noble’s unaged Crystal tequila whets palettes for the full-bodied Reposado and the deep, golden Anejo, both of which are aged in French white-oak barrels. Between tastes of tequila, customers nibble on three gourmet appetizers designed to complement each spirit’s subtle flavor and fashion-forward hue.
In the colorful, spacious dining room, folk art decks the orange, red, and purple walls while statues stand at attention amid pastel Christmas lights. Patrons enjoy their meals at rustic four-top tables, or dine family-style at long banquet tables that are perfect for large groups or games of Tequila Pong.
