Our Story

At Jalisco we celebrate modern, Mexican cuisine by our Chef, José Meza, an award-winning, 28-year-old Mexican talent with experience at some of the world's most luxurious restaurants and hotels. Fresh ingredients shine in each of Meza's dishes and every craft cocktail. Come in to sip mezcal at the bar or stay for a long conversation over tacos al pastor in our dining room. Each party at Jalisco is one-to-remember with floor-to-ceiling views of twinkling lights on our soaring oak trees flanking the space. 

"THE ROOT OF MEXICAN CUISINE IS ABOUT BRINGING THINGS TOGETHER, AND TAKING CARE OF EACH INGREDIENT ALONG THE WAY." - CHEF JOSÉ MEZA

Chef José Meza’s Journey to
Jalisco Norte

Jalisco Norte is a journey through Mexico without ever leaving the table. Executive Chef José Meza, who was born and raised in Mexico, takes diners on a culinary experience with his nostalgia for Mexican cuisine and expertise in some of the world’s top restaurants. From Martin Berasategui, a Michelin three-starred restaurant in San Sebastian, Spain to the best restaurant in the world, NOMA in Copenhagen, Denmark, Chef Meza has taken his learnings from each experience to create a truly unique dining experience for patrons here at Jalisco Norte. Meza’s dishes reflect Mexican heritage and tradition, while sticking to the philosophy of obtaining only the highest-quality ingredients and maintaining standards of high-end service required of the best restaurants.

Meza draws inspiration from his family and the desire to be the best by learning from the best. During his travels through his home country, he felt strong connections to Oaxaca, Puebla and Yucatan, and from those towns, he crafted menu items that pay homage to its people, cultures and customs. From Jalisco’s signature mole negro, made from more than 50 ingredients, to the Nopal salad, which features cactus leaves, Meza and his team are curating an experience for patrons that cannot be found elsewhere.
