La Gloria is a place that was created to celebrate the rich and delicious street foods from interior Mexico. From tacos al pastor in Mexico City, tlayudas in Oaxaca, to coctéles de mariscos from Veracruz, Mexico's street foods are as unique and colorful as its traditions, people and culture.
La Gloria means "the heavens", and our wish is that you experience heaven on earth through dining with us. Remember, "No hace falta morir para llegar a la Gloria." ("You don't have to die to go to heaven.")
We believe we are changing the way diners taste, experience, and think about Mexican food. Innovative, deeply rooted in culinary traditions, and inspired by Chef Johnny's extensive travels throughout Mexico. La Gloria is situated on the grounds of the historic Pearl Brewery. The menu is filled with the heavenly flavors ordinarily found only among the street vendors, taquerías, and kitchens of interior Mexico. Devotion to authenticity goes beyond the menu and is reflected in every facet of La Gloria, from the stunning copper grill hand-crafted by Mexican artisans, to the unique angeles sopladores y voladores - flying and blowing angels that welcome diners and blow away evil spirits.
