Wednesday evening, The Beach Reporter crowned Ortega 120 in Redondo Beach as their October 2012, Restaurant of the Month. I discovered Ortega 120 in 2009 when I saw them on a local news station on Cinco de Mayo. What caught my interest was that the “120” in the name referred to the number of tequilas they served. I immediately knew that was where I had to spend that Cinco de Mayo. I was happy to discover that not only did they carry more tequilas than I will probably ever try, but they had really good food too. I think that having the lady up front making tortillas in front of everyone was an indicator that they had confidence in the freshness of their product. Not only do they have great food, but their Margarita has been named the best in LA for a couple years now. I have returned several times since.
Tonight’s event was very well attended and there were appetizers, live music and $5 Margaritas. It was a recipe for a fun evening. Congratulations to Ortega 120 on being named Restaurant of the Month for October 2012 and thank you to The Beach Reporter for the invitation. I can not wait for your next event.
