Mi Cocina on the Park
By now, everyone knows Mi Cocina, the flagship of the M Crowd Restaurant Group. The original Preston Forest location opened thirty years ago with a hip setting and a sophisticated menu of updated Tex-Mex. And the rest is restaurant history. What’s left to say? Well, the chain has opened a glossy new location on Klyde Warren Park, lending new glamour to the Arts District. A spacious patio encourages people-watching; walls of windows give indoor diners a park panorama. Tourists and Dallasites alike should be happy here; the now familiar menu is meticulously executed, with favorites like bacon-wrapped Gulf shrimp, brisket tacos, and the signature Mambo Taxi cocktail, a frozen marg swirled with sangria. Don’t miss the chocolate tres leches cake.
