Award-Winning Plant-Based Mexican Cuisine in OC


Following its notable recognition in the 2019 Michelin Guide California, LA-based Gracias Madre opened its second location in Orange County in Newport Beach in the former Gratitude Kitchen & Bar location.

The exciting, new menu at Gracias Madre Newport Beach features favorites from the flagship West Hollywood location including the Bowl Uno, Jamaica Flautas, and Jackfruit Carnitas Tacos amongst others, by an array of exclusive items created by award-winning Chef Alan Sánchez Lázaro, who joins the team from Mexico City where he most recently served as Executive Chef of Parcela CDMX.

His signature dishes such as the Al Pastor Pineapple Tacos, refreshing Watermelon Carpaccio and Churros with Dipping Chocolate also use locally sourced, organic ingredients and pair perfectly with the restaurant’s legendary cocktails.

At the helm of the restaurant’s centerpiece bar, craft spirits enthusiast and bar manager Luis “Bowtie Lui” Del Pozo will bring his creative, interactive style to the Newport Beach location along with a new range of notable cocktails. Gracias Madre’s unique cocktail menu showcases organic, artisanal tequila and mezcal craft cocktails that are free of chemically processed spirits that have undergone diffusor production.

Quality spirits included in the menu are made exclusively from agave bases, keeping with the brand’s commitment to serving the highest quality ingredients while upholding their dedication to production quality, sustainability, and accountability. The Quinceanera, Purista, and So Fresa So Clean are just a few of the extensive cocktails featured on the artistic menu.

As Newport Beach’s newest event venue, the restaurant is ideal for events and celebrations for up to 325 standing (215 seated) with a full buyout option for the exclusive use of the entire indoor and outdoor space. For more intimate gatherings, Gracias Madre’s private dining room can accommodate up to 30 (20 seated) guests. Full catering and bar offerings are also available for offsite events.

Gracias Madre Newport Beach is located at 1617 Westcliff Drive in Newport Beach.
