Puesto Brings A Taste Of Mexico City To Irvine

Puesto has finally arrived in Orange County. We opened our doors on a chilly but celebratory New Year’s Eve 2016. Curious locals arrived to find a shiny new Mexican hotspot in Los Olivos Marketplace Irvine.

Famed San Diego artist Paul Basile designed a space that takes inspiration from monumental Mesoamerican architecture, while also paying homage to contemporary Mexico City. It transports you to a modern Mexican jungle where light pours through a giant golden skylight onto lush greenery and thousands of hand-poured concrete tiles that surround the dining space. The black and gold quartzite bar connects the dining room to a large patio set in a grove of olive trees.

The interior presents multiple dining options: date night in the main dining room, semi-private group dining in the east room with Craig & Karl’s bold artistry, a cocktail at an indoor or outdoor bar, or a more relaxed dining experience at our playful steel agave fire pit. Not to be missed is one of three dining tables located inside our kitchen.

Puesto Los Olivos Irvine is located at 8577 Irvine Center Drive at the Los Olivos Marketplace across from Whole Foods in Irvine, California. Puesto is open 11 am to 9 pm Sunday through Thursday, and 11 am to 10 pm Friday and Saturday.
