La Ventura: Modern Mexican Food Melts in Your Mouth

 

La Ventura: Modern Mexican Food Melts in Your Mouth

I had the opportunity to experience Jeffrey Saad‘s new restaurant, La Ventura, on Ventura Boulevard in Studio City last night. “[Saad’s] insatiable appetite for ingredients and flavors and encyclopedic knowledge of spices allows him to create ‘food without borders.'” I fully enjoyed everything and highly recommend you visit right away.

A few fun facts: Jeffrey was the host of Spice Smuggler on the Food Network and United Tastes of America series on the Cooking Channel.

Join the La Ventura Team for an exclusive Herradura event Tuesday, August 12. Extremely limited seating, call today for reservations.

Excited to try @tastelaventura Thx @breadandbutterpr! Look for @nokia #oneshot #photos #ILoveLA!

Enjoying guacamole, chips and the la Ventura special margarita with herradura double barrel reposada tequila– with agave harvested by Chef Jeffrey Saad. Aged in double barrel! Only 250 bottles exist only created for #LaVentura

At the next table, we are tempted by their order of Mar y Tierra: grilled skirt steak, shrimp with tamarind-chipotle sauce–served with rice, drunken bacon pinto beans & a stack of warm flour or corn tortillas.

Incredible tastes! Achiote chicken Taco, Carne Asada Taco, Grilled Achiote rubbed fish, corn and plantains! Amazing food! Thank you to our wonderful server, Adrian.

Decadent desserts! Homemade Salted Caramel Ice Cream and Churros with piloncillo caramel and chocolate dipping sauces. #Heavenly!

Thank you to Betsy FlanaganBread and Butter PR, Jeffrey Saad and the entire La Ventura team!
