Meet me at the Corner! La Esquina is a place for fun and food with friends.

La Esquina (“the corner” in Espanol) is family-owned and operated by Christian Alvarado Bello, Jonathan Villegas Bello and Leticia Degante. They get an assist from Jose, who you will usually find behind the bar attentively mixing scratch made cocktails of all sorts. The extensive bar selection includes fresh fruits and juices to accompany just about any sort  of tipple you fancy, including artisanal tequilas from Jalisco and other regions of Mexico.

You will receive a warm welcome as you settle in for authentic Mexican dishes, crafted from family recipes passed down through the family. Some dishes are inspired by Veracruz, Mexico and all the unique flavors and spices of the unique locale. 

The staff will be especially happy to share some of their award winning cuisine. La Esquina has made a mark on Burien’s “Foodie Paradise,” winning the Empty Bowls trophy for “Best Soup” with their savory and satisfying Pozole.

They also offer an unexpected selection of fresh sushi on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Sushi in a Mexican joint? Who’d have thunk it? Surprisingly, it is quite popular with a local following showing up to get their Sushi fix on the weekends.

Weekends are also a great time to enjoy the entertainment at La Esquina with your friends, thanks to monthly live music, sports on the big screens and  DJ Tony Ramirez hosting Karaoke. Be sure to like them on Facebook or check their website to keep up with what’s on the calendar. It’s clear that the whole staff and owners like to have a good time! They have invested in impressive lights, screens both big and small strategically placed around the perimeter and sound system. Their lighting scheme gives a flattering glow and sets a festive atmosphere throughout the thoughtfully decorated interior. The restaurant and bar have comfortable seating options and there is a well appointed patio when the weather is good.

But don’t just think of La Esquina as a place to grab a bite and some beers…they also offer catering (even for their Sushi!) and private party options for business meetings, birthday parties or any special event.

We are thrilled to have a great new spot in the neighborhood – check it out today!
