Restaurant review: Mexican eatery Flores offers super-duper vibe; Flores vibrates with convivial energy from the get-go with music that emanates from above to greet diners approaching the grand main entrance. The stylish décor, bold murals and zesty accouterments visually distract from the airiness of the over-sized room.

What’s Hot: Flores – Elevated Mexican Food Comes to Corte Madera; The casual restaurant checks the boxes, serving traditional, family-style food and contemporary cocktails, with an emphasis on California seasonality and locally sourced ingredients.
Book a table at the best new restaurants in San Francisco; Flores’ new location in the suburban town of Corte Madera is a welcome and rare opportunity to enjoy mole and mezcal in Marin. Dine on Mexican specialities like sikil p’ak (spicy pumpkin seed salsa) and tlacoyos (masa stuffed with huitlacoche and cheese), all sopped up with house made tortillas.
More hot stuff; Locals who haven’t yet dined at Flores, the second branch of Cow Hollow’s upscale Mexican eatery that just opened in Corte Madera Town Center, have something to look forward to. Looking past the craft cocktails, woven lanterns and traditional cowhide chairs of the jam-packed bar, patrons lock eyes with a brilliant señorita, the focus of a mural by local artist, “Machy.”
