CHEF CARLOS SALGADO AND TACO MARIA EARNCOVETED MICHELIN STAR

Costa Mesa-based restaurant and chef included in first ever MICHELIN Guide California

 

Costa Mesa, Calif., (June 07, 2019) ‚Äď Chef Carlos Salgado and hisfamily-inspired Costa Mesa restaurant, Taco Mar√≠a, were awarded a MICHELIN Star in the first ever MICHELIN Guide California on June 3, 2019.¬† Chef Salgado‚Äôs Taco Mar√≠a was amongst 90 restaurants in the state to receive a coveted MICHELIN Star and was one of two selected restaurants out of the 34 Orange County cities under consideration.

In order for a restaurant to earn a MICHELIN Star, that indicates that the establishment provides a consistent, high-quality dining experience.  Each restaurant recognized in the MICHELIN Guide California was announced on June 3 during a live revelation in Huntington Beachwhich featured an oceanfrontcelebration with a variety of food offerings from chefs including Mourad Lahlou, Melissa Perello, Wolfgang Puck and Michael Cimarusti.

‚ÄúThe sincerest congratulations are in order for ChefSalgado and the Taco Mar√≠a team for receiving this well-deserved honor,‚ÄĚ notesDeana Morgan, Vice President of Real Estate Management at Burnham USA.¬† ‚ÄúThe Burnham team is humbled and thankful to have such an incredible culinary talent as a part of the SOCO + The OC Mix family.‚ÄĚ

Taco Mar√≠a serves Alta California cuisine, which combines Mexican and American cultures to create both a meaningful and flavorful dining experience, all of which is generated from one important ingredient ‚Äď corn.The Mexican saying, ‚ÄúWithout corn, there is no country,‚ÄĚ is the heart and backbone of the restaurant and is recognized by Chef Salgado each day as he works to reinterpret and evoke Mexican cuisine to create thoughtful dishes such as Aguachile, Tocino, and, of course, elaborate tacos on a fresh-made tortilla.

With help from the MICHELIN Guide California, Taco María will forever be known as a go-to dining destination for California residents and visitors.  TheMICHELIN Guide is a trusted companion to its readers and will always be a valuable resource for diners because it has stayed true to its evaluation criteria andgiven readers a consistent guide experience with every new release.
