We don’t have any details yet, but a grand opening for our neighborhood Mi Cocina is set for Wednesday, July 18. The new Mi Cocina is adjacent to the Lakewood Theater, in the old Matt’s spot.
The new restaurant has been under construction for months, and the patio was open for Lakewoodstock.
Could not agree more, Seat.
Looking forward to it! As far as Matt’s, I can only assume that at one point in time they had good food – but in the last 5 years they were open, I found the food was not good at all. I think they became complacent thinking they had a captive audience and let their quality slide. I hope Matt’s opens back up in their new location re-energized and put forth a good product…and if they do, I think we have a win-win with both Mi Cocina and Matt’s in Lakewood.
Mi Cocina has nothing to match a King Margarita at Matt’s. What MC serves is poison.
All the Mexican food I’m Dallas sucks. At least good margaritas and fajitas. . .
Sigh. Still in mourning and craving a Smoked Bob.
So, that means that I’ll have to drive all the way down LaVista to eat at Matts instead of walking out my back door.
Ditto on the “meh” for MiCo and “C’Mon!” for Matt’s…
Jessica and Anne, we don’t know the official opening date for Matt’s yet. Just driving by their new space, though, it looks like they’re still a couple of months out.
We won’t be going…the food is mediocre and to me that space will always belong to Matt’s….speaking of Matt’s, what my family really wants to know is when will it reopen!!?? The restaurant’s website still says “coming soon,” and the phone number listed for the new location is out of order.
Tell me when Matt’s reopens, THEN I’ll be excited. :/
