From the team behind hospitality group Season + Taste (of Gambas, Cargo Cantina and more) comes Masa + Mezcal; dedicated to the staples of drinking and dining in Mexico. Centred on Mezcal, the agave-based spirit, and masa, the corn dough which forms tortillas, it's all about authentic South American food. 

Taking over Corner 77, Masa + Mezcal places particular emphasis on farm-to-plate dining, ensuring that ingredients are locally sourced and dough is stone-ground in-house. Expect a lively atmosphere providing the setting for tasty food, great margaritas and craft beers.

Following an extensive research trip to Mexico City, founders Imogen and Kieran Waite underwent rigorous training at Maizajo; the Mexico City spot known for its iconic tortillas. Along with two managers and head chefs Mark Chapman and Alec Morton, the duo underwent rigourous training in preparation for the new opening.
