FINCA is a Mexican restaurant focused on bringing traditional and regionally inspired cuisine to California’s Central Coast. Located in the historic farmhouse of the Old Hometown Nursery of Paso Robles comes the latest project from the owners of La Taquiza - a Napa based Mexican restaurant that has been in the Michelin Guide since 2009. With over 20 years experience in the service industry, co-owner Patrick Aguirre has worked under the likes of Thomas Keller of the French Laundry and Suzanne Goin of AOC. His business partner and wife Stephanie, has managed multiple businesses, from aiding in her family’s seafood distribution company to running restaurants in both Napa and Los Angeles. Accompanying them in opening FINCA is son, Diego, and daughter-in-law, Cecilia, who both graduated from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and have been in the area since 2013. With a combined 15 years experience in the wine and service industry between them, they are excited to bring their passion and love for their community to this home-grown venture.
FINCA is founded on using fresh and local ingredients, providing welcoming service, and becoming a giving member of the Paso Robles community by serving their neighbors. Grab a few mesquite-grilled tacos, a cold beer or a glass of wine, and relax on the fire-lit patio or inside our newly designed, hacienda-styled farmhouse.
