About us

Welcome to La Lotería — a new take on authentic Mexican cuisine from Executive Chef/Owner Julieta Ballesteros (Crema, Los Feliz) and Managing Partner/Owner Jaime Herrera.

The game La Lotería has been played throughout Mexico since Colonial times. Similar in concept to American Bingo, it is played using 54 widely varied characters and symbols of Mexican culture (like the skull, the moon, the mermaid & the rooster), and it inspires our ambiance, drinks, and menu.

Not unlike the game, Mexican cuisine is unique, varied and steeped in tradition. With the cultural touchstone of La Lotería at its core, the restaurant will introduce to New York’s sophisticated palate an exciting and surprising mix of Mexican recipes, ranging from the deliciously elemental “street” taco, to the scallops with Mexican black truffle.

Come experience the spirit of La Lotería. Our specialty drinks and inspired cuisine await you in our inviting, newly designed West Village space.

For all of us, this has been an incredibly difficult time. We have had to make decision this last week that seem completely unreal. At the direction of our leaders in health and government, we have closed La Loteria indefinitely.

This shutdown has critically endangered the livelihood of our entire team of 20 people.

We opened La Loteria 5 years ago,some employees have been with us since the beginning; they are every bit a part of our family and we feel an enormous responsibility to them. La Loteria has always been restaurant of hardworking and devoted cooks, waiters, dishwashers, managers, and more.

Now we need that support more than ever.

We are asking you today to help us help our staff during this uncertain time. Everyone wants to work but cannot from their homes; our industry just doesn’t work that way. Zero income means zero payroll, which threatens the very survival of our family of employees.

At this incredibly challenging moment, every dollar counts and helps.

We know that New York will get through this – our city is resilient; and we as New Yorkers will always stand united.

Our restaurants will eventually reopen. Please help us leave no team member behind.

Thank you for your support and wish good health to all of us.
