Decadestwo co-owner Christos Garkinos, who is the self-proclaimed “Robin Hood of Fashion,” has access to some of Hollywood’s best closets, like Charlize Theron, Rachel Zoe and Selma Blair. When he’s not shmoozing with the rich and fabulous and filling his store with high-end consignment items at killer prices, Christos is at Tere’s Mexican Grill.
“It’s the best Mexican food in the city,” Christos told citybuzz. At Melrose and Cahuenga, this popular and humble Mexican joint is just steps from his home, which as he explains is “a huge LA bonus.” The easy-to-miss restaurant may have tennis ball-footed chairs and orders are only taken at the bar, but who needs pizazz when the food does all the talking? Delicious handmade tortillas wrap the overflowing burritos and tasty enchiladas. A favorite meal is the Carne Asada Nachos that’s washed down with a fresh, traditional Horchata drink. The sunny, earthy interior as well as sidewalk seating make this a perfect spot to enjoy the LA sunshine, while chowing down on some of the best Mexican food North of the Border.
