Wynwood has yet another new restaurant, this time it’s a Mexican-inspired outpost called Bakan (2801 NW 2nd Avenue). Brought to us by the Jaguar Hospitality Group with Grupo Gavall, owners of Jaguar Ceviche Spoon Bar and Latam Grill; Talavera Cocina Mexicana; and Peacock Garden Bistro, it features variety of regional Mexican dishes and a large assortment of mezcal and tequila offerings.
The 180-seat restaurant boasts a cacti-lined outdoor bar and terrace filled with inverted wood pyramid canopies and brown and green hanging basket fixtures. The artsy vibe continues inside with wood accented furnishings and a green-tiled kitchen that allows guests to witness the on-site tortilla making process.
As for the menu, expect dishes like tacos made with the aforementioned tortillas filled with items like Alaskan King crab, along with larger dishes whole red snapper and short rib mole. The bar has more than 500 mezcal and tequilas on hand so expect plenty of cocktails made with those spirits like a margarita and Mezcal mule Also beers by the bottle, beers on tap and micheladas are available.
