Authentic Mexican Cuisine
We welcome you
La Calavera Catrina roughly translated to “The Dapper skeleton” was first introduced by print maker and illustrator Jose Guadalupe Posada as a satirical portrait of Mexican natives who, Posada felt, were aspiring to adopt European aristocratic traditions and dressed imitating a French style, covering their faces with white makeup. The popularity of the Catrina as well as the official name is derived from Diego Rivera’s mural “Sueño de uno Tarde Dominical en la Alameda Central” (Pictured on the left) Rivera’s mural depicts a culmination of 400 years of Mexico’s major historical events. We took this mural and what it represents as inspiration when building Catrinas Mex. Much like Diego Riveras Mural, this restaurant represents Mexico’s rich history, it’s culinary history that is.
