Newport Beach’s Gratitude Kitchen & Bar has transformed into plant-based Mexican hotspot Gracias Madre. With chef Alan Sánchez Lázaro at the helm, expect some of the same crowd-pleasing dishes you’d find at the original West Hollywood location alongside some of his exclusive creations just for OC folks. Fill up on al pastor tacos topped with pineapple, jamaica flautas, and avocado brownies for dessert. All which can be washed down with a margarita or a mezcal flight. The décor also got a makeover to match the Gracias Madre vibe. The bar is wrapped in beautiful Mexican tiles. There’s lush greenery and eye-catching accents throughout and a new private dining room perfect for intimate holiday celebrations.
