5471 Wisconsin Avenue
Mi Cocina, considered a local Tex-Mex favorite by residents of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, plans to open in early May at The Collection (5471 Wisconsin Avenue; 301-652-1195). The modern restaurant brims with delicious, time-honored recipes, all the while embracing a comfortable and family-friendly attitude that has been celebrated by all ages for more than 20 years. Mi Cocina prepares its diverse menu fresh daily with authentic Mexican cooking techniques and the finest ingredients.
The new neighborhood restaurant will serve Tex-Mex favorites and Mi Cocina classics like the Tacos “De Brisket”, Sunset Fajitas, and Rico Salad. Mi Cocina honors long time employees, family members and personalities that have been a part of the restaurant’s unique history by naming menu items after them, sharing their culture with generations of Texans that have dined there since the first location opened in 1991.
At The Collection, a stylish and relaxed interior will accommodate 155 in an open dining room. Adorned with custom chandeliers and a showpiece mural from Mexican-born artist Luis Sottil, the dining room embraces both the old and the new. Sottil’s bright and vibrant works are crafted with natural pigments, depicting creatures and plants found locally alongside wildlife found in abundance in his native Tampico, an exuberant port in the Gulf of Mexico. The restaurant also offers a comfortable, glass-enclosed private dining room for up to 25 guests, perfect for parties or office meetings with a sweeping view of the colorful interior. Seasonally, the front of the restaurant opens up to Wisconsin Avenue allowing guests to enjoy al fresco dining in addition to the spacious, shaded courtyard patio located in the breezeway.
