El Segundo’s outdoor beach-adjacent retail mecca The Point adds Tocaya Organica as a tenant today. It’s only been two months since the healthy Mexican chain dropped into Westfield Century City, but the hospitality company The Madera Group is prepared to keep this speedy expansion pace going. Three additional LA locations are on the way, as well as San Diego, and Arizona.
Think of Tocaya Organica as the low-maintenance sibling of its fancier sister restaurant in West Hollywood, Toca Madera. This rapidly expanding chain, which has several stunning-yet-unique outposts across LA, lets you customize your own bowls, wraps, burritos, or tacos with locally sourced, organic produce and fresh proteins.
Kelly Wearstler’s renovation of the Westfield Century City mall set the design bar high. The one billion dollar renovation reimagined the shopping center as a modern marketplace and public gathering spot with intimate lounges defined by comfortable seating, plants and colorful tiles. The walkways are punctuated by art exhibits and installations; elegant bathrooms and lounge areas; upscale shopping and innovative restaurants and cafes.
From sports bars, to dive bars, to full-fledged restaurants, the Westside is filled with locations offering specials for happy hour. Whether you are grazing with friends or colleagues, or grabbing a cocktail and a quick appetizer solo before heading home, here are the best places for a happy hour bite and drink.
