Miriam Cocina Latina, the newest concept from restaurateurs
Shannon Wynne and Miriam Jimenez opens tonight in the Dallas Arts District neighborhood situated on downtown’s Klyde Warren Park. Miriam opens 7 nights a week at 5:00pm and will soon open for lunch Wednesday, May 15 at 11am.
Offerings include shared plates, soups, salads, tacos, enchiladas, combination plates, main courses and desserts from Mexico with vegetarian options. A combination of authentic dishes and new creations are prepared using fresh ingredients as well as house-made sauces and moles prepared with bold, aromatic chiles.
A clever cocktail menu showcases a broad selection of margaritas in addition to rum and Mezcal libations, a curated list of white and red wines available by the glass as well as Mexican and local beers.
The namesake restaurant celebrates Miriam Jimenez, a restaurant veteran well-known for her tenure with Mr. Mesero and Mesero restaurants under the guidance of famed restaurateur Mico Rodriguez.
“Opening Miriam Cocina Latina is the most exciting and rewarding experience in my life. I’m excited to dedicate myself to the food and hospitality industry I love,” says Miriam. “Guests can expect exotic flavors and zingy cocktails in a relaxed atmosphere with a friendly and knowledgeable staff.”
“Anyone who has ever seen Miriam work a dining room can expect to see her back in her groove,” says Shannon Wynne. “Those who have not yet had the opportunity will be drawn to her immediately – you can’t resist that smile.”
Artwork by local artist Brent Hale and The Miles Sisters don the walls of the completely renovated space with a clever game of “I Spy” incorporated into the ceiling mural.
