Tinga Reboots Renee's Sooner Than Expected

Hello Tinga, bye bye Renee

The change in Santa Monica is happening quicker than previously reported at Renee's Courtyard. Despite original rumors of maintaining Renee's for a few more months, the Tinga team has temporarily shuttered the bar and will reopen Renee's only until mid-March. Eater reports this changing of the guards also means Tinga Santa Monica's menu will no longer be the chic Mexican cuisine so praised by Jonathan Gold.
