Modern Mexican cuisine has been a hot topic this last year with the arrival of chef Enrique Olvera's Cosme in NYC, chef Javier Plascencia's Bracero, which opens in San Diego next month, and the recent announcement that chef Diego Hernandez will be opening +52 in the Fall, right here in L.A. Local chefs like Wes Avila and hosting chef Ray Garcia--along with others here in town--have begun to define a homegrown style of Modern Mexican here in Southern California, known as Alta California cuisine.

Chef Ray Garcia has seized the opportunity of having some of the best Mexican chefs in the world here in town for LA Weekly's sold-out Tacolandia (6/6), to put on a pre-Tacolandia, 6-course dinner, sponsored by DeLeon tequila, who will be pouring their tequila at the cocktail reception.

Garcia will be joined by 3 chefs from the San Pellegrino Latin America's 50 Best Restaurants: Guillermo Gonzalez (Pangea), Solange Muris (Manzanilla), and Diego Hernandez (Corazon de Tierra) and chef Wes Avila (Guerrilla Tacos) for a special Modern Mexican dinner at Broken Spanish, in the former Rivera space. Sergio Gutierrez of Monterrey's Bocanegra beer will pair up with chef Gonzalez on his course.

This dinner represents where Modern Mexican began, with pioneering restaurants Pangea (1998) and Manzanilla (2000), to the current generation of contemporary Mexican restaurants on both sides of the border, Corazon de Tierra, Broken Spanish and Guerrilla Tacos.

Tacolandia has been sold out for 7 weeks, so here's a chance to get in on the festivities, or make it a Tacolandia weekend if you've already got your golden tickets. Tickets are $107.95 each on Eventbrite for rare chance to catch this Modern Mexican line-up in Los Angeles.
