Some Bay Area diners may recognize the duo behind this new venture.
Chef / owners Sergio Emilio Monleón and Emily Sarlatte have gained quite a following for their incredible paellas, cooked at many high-end weddings and local food festivals with their catering company Ñora Cocina Española. At La Marcha, the pair will continue to share their innovative take on Spanish cuisine in a space that offers a warm, lively local neighborhood vibe.
Spanish cuisine is more than flavorful, it is brimming with energy and passion. La Marcha’s menu of tapas and paellas, coupled with a community atmosphere, reflect the chefs’ shared passion for Spanish cuisine, and their desire to transport the lively tapas bar culture they both experienced in Spain here to Berkeley. Fusing the best of Spanish culinary traditions with the bounty of fresh produce and ingredients the Bay Area has to offer has resulted in innovative dishes.
