The Beach Reporter’s Restaurant of the Month – Ortega 120, Redondo Beach

Wednesday evening, The Beach Reporter crowned Ortega 120 in Redondo Beach as their October 2012, Restaurant of the Month. I discovered Ortega 120 in 2009 when I saw them on a local news station on Cinco de Mayo. What caught my interest was that the “120” in the name referred to the number of tequilas they served. I immediately knew that was where I had to spend that Cinco de Mayo. I was happy to discover that not only did they carry more tequilas than I will probably ever try, but they had really good food too. I think that having the lady up front making tortillas in front of everyone was an indicator that they had confidence in the freshness of their product. Not only do they have great food, but their Margarita has been named the best in LA for a couple years now. I have returned several times since.

Tonight’s event was very well attended and there were appetizers, live music and $5 Margaritas. It was a recipe for a fun evening. Congratulations to Ortega 120 on being named Restaurant of the Month for October 2012 and thank you to The Beach Reporter for the invitation. I can not wait for your next event. Continue reading

Networking at Noon at Ortega 120

Today we went to Ortega 120 in Redondo Beach for another Networking at Noon. I am sure it was pure coincidence that the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce (TACC) scheduled two Networking at Noon events this month with the second one falling on National Tequila Day, and Ortega 120 boasting over 120 different kinds of tequila. I know I was not complaining. I have been to Ortega 120 a couple times, both being on Cinco de Mayo, so it was always really crowded. Going there for lunch gave me the opportunity to look around and check out the decor; it is pretty cool. The food is good too. Naturally, if you enjoy tequila, you have to go there at least once. Come for the tequila, stay for the food. They make tortillas right there on site. They are so good.

One of the owners, Demi Stevens, gave us a little history of Ortega 120 and after hearing it, you have to admire her business savvy. As usual, everyone got an opportunity to give their 30 second sales pitch, which I again devoted to BUSINSSnBEER. We also gave away two certificates for a free beer at one of the upcoming events. I was happy to see the interest BUSINSSnBEER seems to be getting. Will see how many show up Thursday at Monkish Brewing. Continue reading
