Ever heard of Chef Enrique Olvera? He is known as a creative leader in and outside of his field for having pioneered the new Mexican gastronomy movement with his first restaurant, Pujol, in Mexico City. Olvera opened up his first restaurant, COSME, a take on traditional Mexican cuisine made with local ingredients from the Hudson Valley (home of te+te!), in New York a few years ago. Both of these first two establishments (Pujol and COSME) have been selected as two of the world’s top 50 restaurants recently! For his next adventure, Olvera chose to create a more home-y spot, geared toward local and more casual dining in his home area of Nolita. Exciting new Olvera eatery ATLA opened on March 31st of this year at 372 Lafayette St and is hitting just the spot for the Nolita crowd.
Why do we mention Olvera’s inspiring creative pursuits?
While you can of course find bottles of te+te for purchase at small shops from New York to California, you will also be able to eat at the newly opened ATLA and step into the restroom for a pump of refreshing Hinoki Organic Hand Wash. We’re thrilled about the new restaurant, for ATLA customers to encounter Hinoki, and for new horizons for te+te.

P.S. The food was absolutely springlike and fabulous as well as our Handwash! :)
