Come Taste the Heart of Tac/Quila

Tac/Quila brings modern Mexican cuisine to downtown Palm Springs

One weekend Liz and Mark, owners of Tac/Quila, took a short break from life as lawyers and decided to dream a little. We brainstormed, reminisced, reflected and projected, all with a goal of discovering where our dreams intersected. It was clear after a while that our life change would involve hospitality. We love people and their stories, and nothing brings people together like a great meal in a memorable setting. Our first restaurant [ad]venture was FARM, also located in downtown Palm Springs.  FARM allowed us to bring our love of the French countryside to a charming little courtyard, chock full of flowers and tucked away from the hustle and bustle.  We love everything that has become FARM, but there was more to be said.

So part of our life story involves food. It also includes travel, history, and of course, tequila! Tac/Quila is our made up word for combining gourmet Jalisco style cuisine with specialty tequilas and mezcals.  In this way we transport our guests south of the border and into a culture rich in flavor, color, art, and authenticity.

At the same time Palm Springs was laying the foundation for its current international reputation as a mid-century modern mecca, Mexico City was producing and welcoming some of the most important artists of that same movement. From renowned painters like Diego Rivera and Rufino Tamayo to mid-century furniture and accessory artisans Pepe Mendoza and Arturo Pani. Mexico was sinking its cultural roots and solidifying its position as a leader of classic design.

Mexico’s artistry in Palm Springs

Mexico’s artistry extends to its flavorful, colorful and specialized cuisine, which has been so richly honored in places like Austin, Los Angeles and San Diego.  However, it has been otherwise largely ignored. Our goal is to bring you authentic cuisine, crafted by experienced chefs, passionate about exposing you to the best Mexico has to offer. We believe your experience at Tac/Quila should involve the highest quality ingredients, the best possible people, and a rich, inviting ambiance.  In this way we can reflect the heart and soul of Mexico right here in Palm Springs
