An approach to food, life and love

Affectionately called the "Embassy of Latin America in DC," Mio has captured the hearts and palates of DC’s most influential Latin Americans with a convivial table and open kitchen culture. Inspired by the Mio family of foodies who join us for dinner to connect with friends, culture and the flavors they left back home, we have set out to push the boundaries of traditional dishes with fresh creativity and are excited to share the launch of our “Cocina Abierta” concept with renowned Puerto Rican Chefs and friends Roberto Hernandez and Wilo Benet as our consultant Chefs for 2014. Our Cocina Abierta menu combines casual and familiar with creative and authentic. Mio has curated a unique menu from Latin America’s most influential cuisine capitals into dishes that are sophisticated in flavor yet true to their origins. In our kitchen all are welcome, the summers on the beach in the Caribbean, a Sunday parillada, the corner taqueria, cevicheria, lechonera and the arepera all in one place because we believe that there is a Chef for a Day in all of us. Being Latin is not required to enjoy Mio but once here you will find that a part of you already is. La Cocina esta Abierta! Manuel y Karla
