“offers interpretations of classic street food”
Petty Cash, a semi-authentic taqueria, is the collaboration between celebrated Chef Walter Manzke and restaurateur Bill Chait with myriad talent drawn from East LA, Baja and beyond, including Petty Cash’s Chef de Cuisine, Fabian Gallardo. Petty Cash’s menu features Walter’s interpretation of street food classics utilizing the best available local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients, rooted in multi-generational tradition and technique. Petty Cash sits on Beverly Blvd. beneath the (former Playa) rooftop garden stewarded by Chef John Sedlar and features urban elements such as hand-painted murals by local street artist RETNA as well as street-style graffiti art by some of Petty Cash’s kitchen staff, a back room with shuffleboard, and picnic style tables and bench seating which lend to a relaxed and playful communal dining room centered around an active bar.
Who doesn't love a fiesta? At this elevated taquería, the food is as fun as the vibe: graffitied walls, old-school rap, uni- and chicharrón-topped guacamole, tequila flights and tacos. (Bonus: The private back room has shuffleboard!) Please a crowd (up to 20 people) with $35- or $45-per-person menus. The first gets you two appetizers—we love the soft-boiled egg-topped pig ear nachos—followed by a trio of tacos and dessert. (Vegetarians, go for the potato-rolled dorados; carnivores, try the pork carnitas.) The latter gets you an extra appetizer, ceviche, and an additional taco. Throw cocktails in the mix—creative concoctions from Julian Cox, all served with striped paper straws—for a foolproof party.
