Gracias Madre

We celebrated my sweet friend Marissa’s very belated birthday last night at Gracias Madre. It’s my second time at this new, plant-based Mexican restaurant in West Hollywood. I’ve never been to the one in S.F., but now it’s on my “to go” list next time I’m up in the Bay Area. The decor is lovely, with small touches that really make for a great experience, and the food is delicious. They make their own cashew crema and spicy nacho cashew cheese, and they offer a few dishes with mole, which I love. We had a great server last night, who was very attentive — she recommended the brussels sprouts and she was not wrong. They were amazingly indulgent. As were the flautas, El Plato, ginger ale, and pineapple guava juice.
