Remember those Sean Brock-to-Ponce City Market rumors? As it turns out, they were right on the money. Brock will launch a second outpost for his Mexican concept, Minero, inside the development's Central Food Hall, according to Atlanta Magazine. Plans call for an April 2015 launch.
This will be the second location for Minero, which serves street food-style tacos on house-made tortillas. The menu will be similar to that in Charleston, but not identical, since ingredients will be sourced locally when possible.
In addition to serving Mexican-inspired fare, Minero will offer items such as fresh tortillas, salsa, chilies, and limes for sale.
Brock is the man behind McCrady's and Husk in Charleston, and a second Husk outpost in Nashville. He opened the first Minero location in Charleston in early October, and his first cookbook, Heritage, was released last month as well. Brock's restaurant conglomerate, The Neighborhood Dining Group, already includes one Atlanta-area establishment: Chicago's Steaks and Seafood in Roswell. He won the 2010 James Beard Award for Best Chef: Southeast.
The original Minero won the 2014 Eater Award for So Hot Right Now Restaurant.
