New chef at Malo, plus organic margaritas!

Malo's Matthew Dickson updated Eating L.A. on a few recent developments...a new chef, Eric Ritter, has arrived although the menu won't be changing, "just the quality," says Dickson who promises that Ritter, lately of San Francisco's Ponzu, learned Mexican cooking at his mother's knee and speaks fluent Spanish.
Also new at Malo is a 100% organic margarita, because if you're going to get trashed, it might as well be healthy, right? It combines 4 Copas Blanco tequila, agave nectar and organic lime juice. I usually order my margaritas sugar-free anyway at Malo, but these sound even better.

I had the 4 Copas organic margarita last night. Actually I had a few of them. This was hands down the best tasting margarita I have ever had. I had the Partida margarita last week, and there is no comparison between the two. the 4 Copas organic margarita is awesome. The Partida one uses their agave nectar which is darker, and affects the taste. The 4 Copas organic one gave pure lime, sweetness, and wonderful tequila. I wish there was a place that made them closer to where I live in Pasadena. I will definately be back there with friends to show off my new find.

This is really funny because this margarita is not 100% organic nor has it ever been. It is actually only 50% organic, not enough to legally even be labeled organic.
