Los Angeles Times FOOD BOWL Presents: Mesamérica L.A. & DFiesta

About this Event

Please join us April 30 for the opening night of the 2019 Los Angeles Times FOOD BOWL. The evening will begin with Mesamérica L.A. at the Million Dollar Theater in downtown Los Angeles. Mesamérica L.A. is the first incarnation of chef Enrique Olvera’s celebrated symposium to be held outside of Mexico. Olvera and L.A. Times Food Editor Peter Meehan have put together a program that explores the culinary and cultural interconnectedness of Mexico City and Los Angeles to celebrate the sister cities’ 50-year anniversary. Art, architecture, identity and the meaning of tacos will be explored through talks, video and song. The Mesamérica event will be followed by DFiesta next door at Grand Central Market and La Cita Bar. Most of the market will feature for-purchase chef collaborations, roving Mariachi bands and other Mexico City-inspired merriment. For those who buy the $85 ticket, there will be a curated section of the market featuring special one-night-only offerings from:

Ditroit (Olvera’s forthcoming L.A. taqueria) X China Cafe

Don Vergas Mariscos (Mexico City) X The Oyster Gourmet (featuring Sanctuary Oysters by Sol Azul)

Los Panchos (Mexico City) X Sari Sari Store and Petty Cash

Guerrilla Tacos

Horse Thief BBQ
