Chef Wes Avila
An icon of the Los Angeles food scene, Chef Wes Avila began his career with stints at L'Auberge, Marché and Le Comptoir. He is best known for the meteoric rise of Guerilla Tacos, which he started as an experimental street cart. The cart eventually became a roving food truck, and subsequently, an award-winning brick and mortar restaurant in Los Angeles’ Arts District. In fall 2020, Avila opened Angry Egret Dinette, a genre-bending ode to Los Angeles’ street food culture located in Chinatown’s Mandarin Plaza. Long revered for his distinct culinary perspective, Avila has received recognition from the Michelin Guide and the James Beard Foundation for his nuanced blend of regional California and Mexican cuisine.
KA’TEEN is an adventure to the lush jungles of the Yucatan Peninsula, nestled in the bustling heart of Hollywood. Created by Chef Wes Avila and Ten Five Hospitality, celebrated Los Angeles chef and founder of legendary taqueria Guerilla Tacos, the restaurant and Mezcal bar serves up discovery within every dish. The name Ka’teen means “afresh” in Mayan, perfectly describing chef Avila’s vibrant interpretation of the region’s rich and diverse culinary traditions. Immersed in 5,000 square feet of Aztec-inspired tropical garden space, guests can expand their palettes and broaden their horizons through creative tequila cocktails, bold Latin-American flavors and DJ sets that recall the rhythm of the rainforests.
Our 5,000 square foot tropical oasis is the perfect venue to host your private event.
