REOPENS WITH CRUISE-UP COCKTAILS AND TACOS TO-GO
Santa Monica’s Lanea has reopened its doors in time for its one-year anniversary with a new cruise-up take-out option featuring cocktails and tacos for pick-up, as well as expanded outdoor dining, and meal packages.
To celebrate its one-year milestone, the beachy Santa Monica cocktail bar and restaurant has launched an all-day "Taco & Tequila Happy Hour" with $2 tacos and $9 cocktails daily throughout the summer.
Lanea is a spirit-driven cocktail bar and restaurant with an extensive variety of over 400 hand-selected Mezcals and tequilas. Their authentic Mexican cuisine is prepared by Petra Zavaleta, who hails from Tepeaca, Puebla, and rose to foodie fame with her underground barbacoa pop-ups, and later opened Barbakush in East L.A.
“It's been a difficult and stressful year for Santa Monica’s small businesses,” said owner Peter Trinh, “and I know we will collectively band together to weather all the hurdles 2020 has brought us. Petra and I, who are both immigrants, alongside our other partners, are really thankful and humbled by the local support as we continue to offer a safe, affordable outlet for the local community. Come by and check out our new to-go small batched cocktails, canned in-house or our handmade gluten-free tacos, as we’d love to have you as our guest again.”
Upon reopening, Lanea has revamped their landscape and dining experience to safely accommodate customers, implementing the necessary protocols, to enhance the safety of patrons with regards to COVID-19. Lanea has added outdoor dining while abiding by the six-foot social distancing mandatory safety guidelines. Additional safety protocols include administering temperature checks to employees and diners, UV-light sanitizing, all staff must wear masks and gloves, hand sanitizer is readily available, and contactless ordering and payment has been implemented.
Petra and her family source their lamb locally from Chino Hills and prepare their barbacoa in an earthen pit, cooking it slowly over an open fire. Offering five different styles of classic tacos on their handmade-to-order corn tortillas, as well as chips and guacamole, these items are the ideal complement to Lanea’s unique cocktail menu, which include margaritas, Paloma, Old Fashioned, and Oaxacan Mule, among others.
Delivery of alcohol and food is available through Toast, Grubhub, Doordash, Postmates, and UberEats (food only), and pick up is available by calling the restaurant directly.
Lanea is located at 217 Broadway in Santa Monica. Open daily from noon to 9pm. Call 424-265-PIER.
