Renee’s Courtyard Now Closed in Santa Monica, Tinga Moving In

Tinga's short rib tacos coming soon, Santa Monica
As of early this morning, Renee's Courtyard Cafe is no longer serving cocktails to Santa Monica locals. Open since 1981, the beloved cafe and dive bar was purchased by Tinga owners Jerry and Chris Baker in February, and although they've been running it as Renee's, the plan all along was to open their modern Mexican cantina in its place. The Barkers started serving tacos, tostadas, nachos and dirty horchata on La Brea Avenue in 2010. Look for for the full Tinga transformation, with cocktails by Joel Black (Comme Ca, Cana Rum Bar), by mid-April.
