New, 1 comment

Telephone: 786-369-0423
Status: Opening to the public Thursday, March 18 (and accepting walk in guests during a preview period of Friday, March 12 through Tuesday, March 16), Mercadito Midtown will serve Southern Mexican regional cuisine in a 95-seat dining room. An additional 24 seats are available in the lounge area and an adjacent taqueria, opening in 3 to 4 weeks, will offer take-out and delivery. Mercadito Midtown will feature an open guacamole, salsa and ceviche bar offering a variety of house made condiments from mole poblano to manzana (apple, tomatillo, almonds and habanero). Ten types of tacos are also on the menu, including the restaurant's famous pescado tacos made with pan seared tilapia, chile poblano and tomatillo-garlic mojo. Margaritas are individually muddled and made with 100 % blue agave tequila. Mercadito will serve dinner nightly from 5 p.m. to midnight with lunch and taqueria hours to be announced.
