Fusion / Eclectic
Little Bull is sincere, nostalgic comfort food, inspired by the palates of first-generation immigrant kids.

Pocho cuisine is not a gimmick. Like Oscar, it’s a little bull-headed, but with no bullshit. It means more than loaded terms like “New American” or “modern Mexican.” And it’s authentic to Chef’s personal experience.

“American food is undefined. But it’s been designated to certain ideas and people. It’s actually evolving, as much as our landscape is a melting pot. As much as my own identity as a first-generation American and chef.”

Pocho started as a term used by people in Mexico to poke fun at the “American” kids who speak Spanglish. At Little Bull, pocho cuisine showcases the evolution of being a chef in America, inspired by every immigrant and their growing influence on our food.

    That was one of the most delicious meals I’ve had in a very long time! Everyone at our table really loved our food, and our waiter was outstanding! He was super helpful, pleasant, paced our food perfectly, gave great advice … he was fantastic! It’s not cheap so we can’t go every week but it was a real treat!!

    Our experience felt a little like Murphy’s Law. Everything that could go wrong went wrong. When we arrived for our reservation, no one could figure out where to sit us. There were a few different tables that we were told we were waiting on. A party who came in after us were seated at an open table and there was one other open table available. Eventually, we were seated at one of the open tables. One of the dishes we ordered two of was not available; however that was not communicated until 15-20 minutes after we ordered. In that timeframe, at least 4 orders of that dish be delivered to surrounding tables. We didn’t get our first appetizer until an hour past our reservation time. We ordered a medium steak that came out mid-rare and a whole chicken that came out with undercooked thighs. When we paid the bill, our card was ran but the payment slips provided we for a different table. The staff were nice but, overall, it was a disappointing experience.

    Absolutely wonderful meal and delicious cocktail at Little Bull! The inside area was a little small and tight and loud but the overall experience was so wonderful.

    Delicious Mexican inspired Tapas. Very inventive. Crudo was beautiful and tasty. The Octopus; gambas; al Pastore and brussel sprouts oozed flavor. My older son ate the whole chicken Halal Guey
