Coyo Taco: Mexican Street Food and Margaritas Coming to Wynwood in November
Wynwood Art Walk strollers will soon be able to take a taco (and tequila) break when Coyo Taco opens in November, next door to Panther Coffee at 2300 NW 2 Ave.
The small taqueria, named after Mexico City's own version of Wynwood, the bohemian arts district of Coyoacán, will feature homemade tacos using farm fresh ingredients for a "genuine street food experience".
Tortillas will be made on-site and avocados will be hand smashed for guacamole to order. All vegetables will be locally sourced and meat and seafood will be sourced humanely and will be naturally raised.
Although the menu hasn't been finalized, three standout tacos are the carnitas de pato, made with carnitas-style crispy duck; cochinita pibil, made with slow orasted pork shoulder, achiote, and habanaro pickled onions; and a quinoa and queso fritter taco topped with cilantro yogurt.
Of course you can't have a taco without a good margarita, so the restaurant will offer the popular cocktail handcrafted using Coyo's own tequila and mezcal collection. Aguas Frescas, refreshing non-alcoholic fruit beverages, will also be available.
The team behind the restaurant, Alan Drummond, Sven Vogtland and Anna Robbins, have expansive combined experience in the hospitality industry, and look forward to opening in Wynwood. Partner Anna Robbins says, "I'm grateful to have aligned with Alan and Sven and we believe Wynwood is the perfect home for this concept."
Coyo will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and offer late night dining. Sty tuned for more menu items and opening information.
