Opening in Midtown on Monday is the first Georgia location of Texas-based Mi Cocina. It'll have two floors of seating including two private dining rooms and features artwork highlighting Georgia-themed natural elements like the peach and the eastern tiger swallowtail, which happens to be the state butterfly. The restaurant is "not chef-driven," but the kitchen will still be helmed by a chef with a not-too-shabby pedigree: Alfredo Ramirez worked previously at Horseradish Grill and Pure Taqueria.
The Tex-Mex restaurant is open for lunch and dinner seven days a week and offers combo platters, a served-anytime brunch menu, tacos "de brisket," an extensive margarita menu, and more. Mi Cocina's ceviche won best taste at Taste of Atlanta last month. Look for open doors on the corner of Peachtree and 11th streets this Monday, November 12.
