I have tried Chef Centeno's two restaurants, including Baco Mercat. His latest venture focuses on the Tex Mex cuisine he grew up with. I am not familiar with Tex Mex, since I avoid national chains that offer such cuisine, but I'm willing to try it from one of the highly regarded chef in LA at the moment. So come join me in Downtown LA as we try out Tex Mex at Bar Ama.






From their website:

"Josef Centeno opened Bäco Mercat in 2011 and in 2012 he opened BAR AMÁ. BAR AMÁ is his version of Tex-Mex inspired by the memories of his family's cooking.






Josef's career started in New York, where he worked at Daniel, La Côte Basque and Les Célébrités. He also was executive chef at Meson G and Opus in Los Angeles and previously chef de cuisine at Manresa in Los Gatos, Calif. Josef and Bäco Mercat have been featured in the L.A. Times, the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Food & Wine and Bon Appetit. He also has been nominated for a James Beard award."
