La Casa Restaurant is a Sonoma staple, especially known for their fresh Mexican food and signature margaritas. La Casa opened its doors in 1967 and has been family owned and operated ever since. Their large indoor dining spaces and private outdoor patio make it a great space for private dinners, wedding after parties, or corporate events.
Lucky for us, our founder Kelly was recently in Sayulita and came back feeling inspired by the vibrant colors she saw on her trip. So much so, that she also brought back a goodie bag full of pom poms and decorations for us to play with.
Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and it gave us the perfect excuse to style a shoot with all the exciting props she brought back- and La Casa was the perfect setting. Their outside space is bright and full of sunshine and is the perfect place to sip on a margarita on Cinco de Mayo.
We ordered the Coatrack and a house Strawberry margarita, blended. The coatrack is the owner's favorite and we can see why. With Cazadores Reposado tequila, Cointreau, and fresh squeezed lime juice, this zesty margarita is served on the rocks with salt. We would recommend this to the margarita drinker who likes something that isn't too sweet and packs a punch. The La Casa margarita is made with Rancho Alegre silver tequila 100% agave, Triple Sec, and housemade sweet and sour- we added strawberry flavor for a little variety. The La Casa Margarita can definitely stand on its own, but the strawberry was delicious.
To accompany all the tequila, we ordered a chicken taco salad, and a side of fresh guacamole to go with the chips and salsa on the table. La Casa's entire menu is fabulous, but our other special recommendations are the Enchiladas de Camaron (shrimp enchiladas) and the Chile Relleno.
