LOCATION: Guelaguetza, Koreatown
We are excited to celebrate the 2021 Gold Award winner Guelaguetza, selected by L.A. Times Arts & Entertainment Editor Laurie Ochoa, wife of the late Jonathan Gold. Guelaguetza first opened its doors in 1994 by immigrant husband and wife Fernando Lopez and Maria Monterrubio. Today, Mr. and Mrs. Lopez are retired and have paved the way for their children, Paulina, Fernando Jr, Elizabeth, and Bricia Lopez to showcase the best of their family recipes and stay true to authentic Oaxacan ingredients. This new generation of Oaxaqueños has taken upon themselves the responsibility of continuing their family’s restaurant success and t also expanding its legacy. The Lopez’s have undoubtedly become ambassadors to Oaxacan cuisine in Los Angeles. Join us in celebrating Guelaguetza for a festive evening filled with food, drink, and live music, presented by City National Bank.
