Ferndale Mexican cultural experience


A new Mexican bar and restaurant dedicated to mezcal has opened in Ferndale. The aptly named Mezcal Mexican Bar & Kitchen is owned and operated by brother and sister team Jose Granados and Sandra Haro. Neither Granados nor Haro hail from restaurant/bar backgrounds, yet Haro says their inspiration to open Mezcal Mexican Bar & Kitchen came from their many trips to Mexico. “We strive to have our customers experience the modern art, flavors and culture of a country that plays such an important role in our story,” she said. The interior of the eatery is decorated with vibrant murals from artist Elton Monroy Duran, whose murals of Mexican life also grace many buildings in southwest Detroit. Haro and Granados commissioned Duran to portray Luchadores, which Haro describes as the Mexican superhero wrestlers from the 1980’s. A full Mexican menu offers everything from specialty tacos and tostadas to southwest salads and soups. The real stars of this show, however, are the mezcals, with over 40 types of mezcal on the menu. You can also order flights of mezcal served up in authentic Mexican-style with oranges and worm salt – ground chiles, salt and toasted larvae from the agave plant. Haro claims that they may indeed be the only place in the Detroit area to offer mezcal flights. 201 E. 9 Mile Road, Fernadale mezcalferndale.com
