Here’s an excerpt and video from my upcoming dynamic article, The Evolution of The Tequila Bar, featuring Mercado restaurant and bar in the heart of Santa Monica, CA.
“Upstairs on the mezzanine, above the kitchen in a smaller, cozier dining area, Marco Antonio Ramos Monterrubio, a dapper chap with contagious energy, unlocks several wrought iron lockers that safely house Mercado’s Mexican spirits treasures. Enthusiastically, he selects several signed bottles and arranges them side by side onto a nearby round wooden dining table.”
