Lalo

Lalo has graced Chinatown on a rather odd corner, giving diners an excellent reason to go somewhere they might not otherwise.

Former El Rey chef Gerardo Gonzalez brings his sunny California disposition to the fore with sweet nods to his Mexican heritage and global explorations. “It is the type of Californian Mexican food I grew up eating with major international influences,” says Gonzalez. “The food at Lalo is my way of tracing roots of Latin cuisine to the traditional and connecting to old-world influences, be it the Middle East, Asia or the Mediterranean.” —Daniel Scheffler
