Gracias Madre is the best Vegan restaurant I have been to so far. Chef Chandra Gilbert knows how to turn Mexican-inspired cuisine and locally grown organic ingredients into flavorful vegan favorites – you would never guess you are eating vegan food! Nestled in the heart of West Hollywood, Gracias Madre is a popular lunch spot as it serves good food and great drinks in a beautiful garden setting. The plating is immaculate, and the service does not disappoint.
Everything you would want in a full meal is to die for here – from your starting drink and appetizer to your main course to your dessert. Gracias Madre has received the most buzz for their innovative and delicious drinks. Their must-try lunch items are the gorditas (potato-masa cakes topped with avocado and warm salsa verde) and flautas de camote (rolled tacos with sweet potatoes and carmelized onions, pico de gallo and guacamole).
