The flavors of Mexico

Vecino, a new restaurant in Detroit’s Midtown, will focus on contemporary Mexican cuisine with Oaxaca and Mexico City influences. Led by executive chef Ricardo Mojica, formerly of Sava’s in Ann Arbor, and head chef Stephanie Duran, former chef de partie at The Aviary, Chicago, the duo will serve up modern Mexican cuisine with a focus on high quality local and seasonal ingredients and the rich flavors and spices of Mexico. At the heart of the kitchen is a wood fire hearth used to create a mix of salsas, small plates and shareable dishes like charred peppers and crispy Oaxacan cheese served with house made heirloom corn tortillas. Diners can also enjoy delicate raw fare like ceviche and crudo and larger dishes such as pollo al carbon and whole snapper. Vecino is the first project by Midwest Hospitality, a Detroit-based company founded by Adriana Jimenez, who grew up working at her family-owned traditional Mexican restaurants in Detroit, and the owners of interior design studio Midwest Common, Colin Tury and Michael Haener. Their vision is to create unique and innovative food and beverage experiences that bridge design and hospitality. “We believe in the idea and practice of placemaking, which means creating inspiring spaces with a focus on strong connections between people and the places they enjoy together,” said Haener. “Vecino was designed to be an elevated yet casual establishment, a perfect place for the unique take on Mexican cuisine that Chefs Ricardo and Stephanie are bringing to Detroit.” 4100 Third Street, Detroit
