The first day of school for any kid is mortifying. We don’t care how popular you were the year before or what kind of pounding puberty took to your face over the summer, the idea of walking back through those doors for another year was a complete horror show. Sure, there were old friends to see, but there were far more new ones to try to awkwardly make. Tack on the harder classes, new teachers, and a gym period you had to share with the 8th graders, and there was nothing remotely comfortable about it.
Escuela, on the other hand, is a different story – every time we come back, we feel pretty great about it.
Located on that stretch of Beverly you avoid because you want nothing to do with The Grove, Escuela is a place you probably frequented a few years ago and might have forgotten about – but it’s still as good as you remember. Yes, there might be those unsettling wooden shoes hanging from the ceiling, but the overall feel inside this warm little Mexican cantina can’t be beat. Want to come in on a casual first date? Solo lunchtime taco binge? Tuesday night friends dinner when you completely forgot to make a reservation? Escuela makes it work. There’s even a circular table in the corner that fits up to 13 people for your big birthday dinner or whenever you want to feel like King Arthur next.
