NOM Tequila Grill opened last November at the Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach in the former home of C Street Restaurant. NOM features authentic Mexican fare from various regions south of the border, including favorite dishes from Guadalajara, Puebla, Jalisco, Oaxaca, Yucatan and central Mexico. Ingredients are farm fresh and locally sourced.
NOM is short for Norma Oficial Mexicana and is a stamp of authenticity for 100% Mexican agave tequila. The restaurant incorporates tequila into many of its dishes. It offers mixed cocktails and 17 different kinds of tequila from the bar. The ambiance is friendly yet casually upscale.
