Well known for their Italian restaurants, D’Amico & Partner’s passion for food extends to all cultures. A food pilgrimage to a Mexican restaurant in East Los Angeles, home to some of the most authentic Mexican fare found in the country, set off a year-long quest of research and immersion to discover the secrets of the cuisine. Wanting to share their profound respect of the food and recognizing the potential to educate consumers about the rich cultures of Mexico, Masa is a contemporary homage to the tradition of Mexican cuisine. After months of development and inspiration drawn from the successful food programs of other celebrated contemporary Mexican restaurants, a menu of cosmopolitan food with regional authenticity was created, which is Masa.
Fisher shares her evening “of Mexican magical realism,” noting Masa’s authentic Mexican cuisine, stunning décor and “perfectly balanced” cocktails...I sipped the blood orange margarita with blanco tequila, lime, triple sec, orange liqueur and the juice of a blood orange that called forth memories like a magic potion.
Masa is experiential dining that transports diners, and the spices and essences incanted the past.
