Great news for Culver City folks (and hammered Rush Street patrons next door): Roughly two months after BäcoShop closed, the team behind it has reopened the spot as Amácita. Like its DTLA cousin, Bar Amá, the space is cool and casual, and the menu features some of the same Tex-Mex favorites - like queso dip and pillow-y handmade tortillas - but Amácita offers plenty of new options, too. The charcoal-grilled baby corn, with queso fresco and a tangy morita chile crema, is a creative play on elote, and larger plates like the pork shoulder pibil, served with sweet-and-sour roasted pineapple and pickled habanero onions, are great for sharing (and pair well with cocktails like a hibiscus frosé). They’ve also kept one of Bar Amá’s best features: The Super Nacho Happy Hour, with daily deals on tacos, drinks, and more.
Amacita is permanently closed.
