We noticed the transformation taking place over the weekend and stopped in on Sunday, where we chatted with owner, Josh Pourgol, who also owns Bardonna down the street. This week is a soft opening but he promised a more celebratory opening is coming soon.
This is the third location for Pourgol and his partner, Oliver Mateen. They opened their first Tacos Tu Madre in Westwood with a tiny take-out window in 2015. Los Feliz followed and soon there will be another location downtown.
Pourgol knows Larchmont and the limitations imposed by the street’s “Q” Conditions. He’s created a fun, instagram-friendly, take-out only space with a long bar that runs the length of the space. The back wall features a bright “Make Tacos – Not War” neon sign on a wall planted with succulents.
It’ll be nice to have tacos back on Larchmont.
