Corte Madera is getting a much-needed infusion of traditional yet upscale Mexican food later this month. Cow Hollow’s Flores is expanding with a second location in Corte Madera Town Center.
As with the original location, the new Flores will deliver family recipes from different regions of Mexico with an emphasis on family-style dining and Californian seasonality. The cooks notably grind corn into masa by hand every day for fresh corn tortillas to go with roasted meats ordered by the pound.
The new restaurant will also have a full bar highlighting rare tequilas and mezcals in a mix of original and traditional cocktails. In other words, yes, you’ll definitely be able to order pitchers of margaritas.
“As a longtime resident of Marin County, I’m excited to bring the best of Mexico to Corte Madera by way of Flores — a concept that doesn’t currently exist in Marin County, and one that elevates Mexican food beyond the standard taqueria offerings,” says co-owner Luis Flores (Uno Dos Tacos) in a statement sent to Eater SF.
While a restaurant exactly like Flores might not exist in Marin County, there are some higher end Mexican restaurants excelling in the area, including Playa and Parranga in Mill Valley and Copita Tequileria y Comida in Sausalito. Corte Madera, however, remains lacking in such options.
So far, there’s no official opening date beyond “mid-October.” Stay tuned for more details.
