Nearly one year ago we launched the good ship Cuisine en Locale in a new direction, opening the doors to our first real home in the former Anthony’s Event space at 156 Highland Ave.
It was a wild evening. A full house of music, and great fun, featuring a live Mariachi band, an endless buffet of Cuisine en Locale’s signature, locavore Mass/Mex food (get it, get it???) and starring a Halloween worthy performance from Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys. Our third annual ONCE Muertos was a great launch party.
You really know a night was special when you start planning the next one the day after. We have all been impatiently waiting for nearly a year to throw this incredible party again, and now the time is finally here. Huzzah! Let the mole making and face painting begin!
This year The Broken Toys are offering not only one, but both Days of the Dead, November 1st and 2nd!
Saturday November 1st will start at 6pm with a full bar, and overflowing buffet tables. We celebrate the dead with delicious smells, as they cannot eat, but you can! Hits from the three past ONCE Muertos celebrations include our Taza chocolate mole, JJ’s renowned pork verde, freshly baked pain de muertos (bread of the dead), pumpkin flan and a divine accompaniment of pickles, salsas and cremas to adorn your plate.
At 8pm we welcome back live mariachi, with Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys to round out the entertainment with a full live set. Charming Disaster will be joining us as well, to sing some murder ballads for you, and look for Toy action all over Cuisine en Locale all night long, as there will be contortionists, jugglers and more to entertain you.
Sunday November 2nd the all you can eat brunch taco buffet opens at noon, with live mariachi kicking off the music at 2pm. Walter Sickert and the Army of Broken Toys will do a full family friendly set.
The bar will be open on both Saturday and Sunday, with a full range of drinks as well as special items, such as Bloody Maria’s featuring our house made, all local bloody mix as well as our unique ginger shrub margarita. Both are made with Suerte silver tequila. So good.
