What’s Hot: Flores – Elevated Mexican Food Comes to Corte Madera; The casual restaurant checks the boxes, serving traditional, family-style food and contemporary cocktails, with an emphasis on California seasonality and locally sourced ingredients.
Book a table at the best new restaurants in San Francisco; Flores’ new location in the suburban town of Corte Madera is a welcome and rare opportunity to enjoy mole and mezcal in Marin. Dine on Mexican specialities like sikil p’ak (spicy pumpkin seed salsa) and tlacoyos (masa stuffed with huitlacoche and cheese), all sopped up with house made tortillas.
More hot stuff; Locals who haven’t yet dined at Flores, the second branch of Cow Hollow’s upscale Mexican eatery that just opened in Corte Madera Town Center, have something to look forward to. Looking past the craft cocktails, woven lanterns and traditional cowhide chairs of the jam-packed bar, patrons lock eyes with a brilliant señorita, the focus of a mural by local artist, “Machy.”
Get Crackin’: The Bay Area Dungeness Crab Heatmap; Union Street Mexican restaurant Flores serves its crab in tostada form: That’s Tostadas de Cangrejo: with Dungeness crab, chipotle, and spicy pickled onions on a crispy tortilla, for $15.
Flores brings the flava’; Flores is a good fit for the retail-heavy Corte Madera Town Center. Soon-to-be-weary holiday shoppers will now have a refuge to refuel with a margarita, a taco—and a brightly colored piece of gum.
Where To Book Dinner For Your Terrible Boss; The Cow Hollow Mexican spot always has a generally good-looking Happy Hour crowd that spills into dinner, and your boss will think they just went to the promised land. Sweet youth.
