As of today, the rapidly growing chain has 15 restaurants but are poised to expand to 22 restaurants by the end of 2022. 

The Santa Monica Kalaveras will be located at 1026 Wilshire in the former Belcampo space. The restaurant’s website describes the restaurant as a “unique fast-casual concept with vibrant colors, art, music, and culture of a time-honored tradition – El Dia de Los Muertos. A blend of innovative urban mixology, Latin American culinary classics, a tribute to well-known Hispanic artists, and nothing but buenas vibras!” You will be able to find dishes such as ceviche, which is a traditional Mexican dish where the seafood is “cured” with lime juice and served raw, molcajete, a mix of skirt steak, chicken, seasoned shrimp, chorizo, cactus and queso fresco served in the traditional Mexican mortar and pestle, Tacos Gobernador, diced sauteed shrimp, jack cheese with house chipotle sauce, salsa de mango and sliced avocado. 

Kalaveras is family owned and operated, with different branches of the family operating in different areas of the city and county of Los Angeles and beyond. The owner of the Kavaleras restaurants on the Westside is Agnel Bahena. 

The restaurant currently has a location open in West Los Angeles at 11940 West Pico and will soon be expanding to Silver Lake, Long Beach, Newport Beach, Orange, Riverside and Montclair.
