We’re always psyched to hear of yet another addition to the Rustic Canyon Family of Restaurants! The collab of Josh Loeb, Zoe Nathan (baker extraordinaire), Colby Goff and Rustic Canyon’s award-winning chef Jeremy Fox,  Tallula’sbrings a new neighborhood Mexican resto to Santa Monica, just above PCH.

Jeremy is overseeing the culinary side of things in his partnership role and Exec Chef Mario Alberto (Formerly of Ysabel, Laurel Hardware) is at the helm.

The ingredient-driven menu has a history close to the heart for both Josh and Zoe who grew up going to this spot in its former incarnation as Marix Tex Mex and the culinary couple had long dreamed of opening their own project in this space.

Ingredients are sourced from the Santa Monica Farmer’s Market, as well as organic dairy and other top-quality products. Of course, there’s a bar — focused on Agave-based spirits and fresh market produce. I’ve got my eye on The Canyon — with Selvarey Rum Plantation O.F.T.D. Rum, fresh lemon and pineapple, housemade turmeric syrup and Angostura bitters. Of course, the margaritas look sublime.
