Mi Cocina Likely to Open in Late Spring in Chevy Chase
The Tex-Mex restaurant will open in a Friendship Heights storefront that has been vacant for nearly two years.
Mi Cocina is slated to open later this spring in the former M Cafe space (5471-5481 Wisconsin Ave., Chevy Chase, MD), restaurant spokesperson Sue List told Patch.
Mi Cocina is owned by the privately held M Crowd Restaurant group, which has restaurants in Dallas/Fort Worth, the Houston area, Tulsa and Atlanta, according to Mi Cocina's website. Mi Cocina's menu includes standard Tex-Mex fare (fajitas, enchiladas, tacos), as well as house specials.
M Cafe, its sister restaurant Famoso and Piazza Sempione, the luxury women’s apparel store that shared the space with the restaurants, shuttered quite suddenly on April 19, 2011, Patch reported. The space has been vacant in the upscale shopping center The Collection at Chevy Chase for nearly two years.
