Bricia Lopez is an entrepreneur, cultural ambassador, and a key figure in the Los Angeles gastronomic scene. Through her family’s James Beard award-winning restaurant, Guelaguetza, in Los Angeles' Koreatown she and her siblings have put Oaxaca cuisine and culture at the forefront of today’s dynamic culinary scene. Her influence extends to the beverage industry too. The New Yorker called Bricia the “queen of mezcal.” In 2019, she helped open Las Vegas' first ever mezcal bar – ‘Mama Rabbit’ inside the Park MGM.
Bricia and her siblings launched two direct-to-consumer brands, a proprietary michelada cocktail, I Love Micheladas™ and Guelaguetza™ mole starters.
