Named after a tree venerated for its healing properties, Palo Santo brings the flavors of wood-smoked cuisine to the Westside. The dimly lit dining area is one room with furry lighting fixtures that remind us of Cousin It. Just a little. The menu features a blend of Japanese and Mexican cuisine, which is perfectly represented in their hamachi tostada, a mix of dry miso, uni, and hamachi with burnt avocado and charred serrano yuzu mayo on top of a crunchy tostada. Dinner options like tlayuda, poblano rice, and grilled octopus are paired well with their P.S. Margarita and other tequila-based cocktails.
