We’ve been following MIRO Kitchen for a bit, but we’re happy to share some great news that we got just got from owner Eugene Kabilnitsky: they’re opening soon. Oh, and it’s gonna be a great spot to check out! That’s because the menu will feature the food of Hawaii, Korea, Japan, the Philippines, and Hong King. We’re talking Pacific-style tacos, Asian-inspired small plates, family style plates, killer salads, and great sides . . . and those flavors are coming from a familiar face or two.
The first person that you’ve hopefully had the chance to meet is Chef Chris Gonzalez, who owns Hapa Food Truck along with his wife Nicole Samela. We can’t ever really express how much we love the food that comes out of that truck (but we did try to in a review.) They have entered into a partnership with Kabilnitsky, so we’re so happy to see them reach even more success. Also in the kitchen will be Chef Howard McCall who has worked at Washington Prime and Barcelona SoNo and Fairfield.
MIRO expects to open on March 19, right where Tomato and Basil Cafe (1876 Black Rock Turnpike) use to be. At the start, they’ll only be open for dinner from 5-10, but they do plan to expand to lunch, brunch, takeout, delivery, and even outdoor dining in late spring.
We can’t wait for this opening: this is the kind of restaurant that we definitely need more of in Fairfield County! Make sure to follow us for more info as we get it and as we review this soon-to-be hotspot.
