Los Angeles, CA


Alejandro + Vanessa connected through their love of cooking and the diverse culture that Los Angeles offers. Metztli is an ode to the food we grew up eating and to the beautiful agriculture that California provides. In Old Aztec Mythology, 'Metztli' was the goddess of the farmers and the moon. We strongly support local farms and use only high quality ingredients that are native to Mexico and California. With a combined experience of over 20 years, Alejandro + Vanessa have worked under several notable chefs such as Jean Georges Vongerichten, Michael Voltaggio, Josef Centeno and Carlos Salgado.
