Zócalo Cocina Mexicana & Cantina, located in Old Metairie, was opened in 2018 by Edgar Caro, a native of Colombia, and Antonio Mata, who is from El Salvador, to serve authentic and unique south-of-the-border cuisine, inspired by their origins and their travels. In 2019 Zócalo was recognized in Critics’ and People’s Choice categories at Top Taco, New Orleans’ signature taco and cocktails event, and was named a Top Place for Mexican/Southwest in myneworleans.com Tops of the Town.
