Salsa Fiesta, South Florida’s homegrown Mexican fast-casual concept, will expand with a sixth location in Miami Lakes – opening to the public on Monday, February 2, 2015. Established in Caracas, Venezuela in 2003 by Cesar Olivo, Adriana Perez Benatar and Samuel Perez Benatar, the family-owned concept will open at 6769 Main Streetadjacent to the Main Street Shopping Center.
New to the concept, the Miami Lakes location will offer tableside service – a first for the South Florida eatery. Duringdinner service – Monday through Friday after 5 p.m. and all day on Saturday and Sunday – guests will be able to enjoy tableside service as opposed to ordering at the counter in keeping with traditional fast-casual dining.
“We’ve been playing with the idea of tableside service for some time and believe that our new location would be the perfect place to introduce it,” says Olivo, Salsa Fiesta CEO and Co-Founder. “Our guests’ comfort and enjoyment are our foremost concern, and we are excited to offer the additional element of tableside service, which will provide a more upscale experience at no extra cost and still stay true to the quality and price point they’ve come to know and love. This is a first for Salsa Fiesta as well as for the fast-casual industry here in South Florida.”
Counter service will continue to be available during weekday lunch. After 5 pm on weekdays and all day on the weekends, Salsa Fiesta will transform into a tableside dining destination perfect for friends and family to gather in the evenings as they switch on ‘chillax’ mode and enjoy Salsa Fiesta’s signature fare without having to leave their table. Meals turn interactive with innovations such as tableside guacamole – also new to Salsa Fiesta.
Staying true to Salsa Fiesta’s vision to drive the fast-casual Mexican restaurant experience to the top tier in quality, service and taste, the Miami Lakes menu will features dishes for any Mexican food lover’s palate, including Burritos & Bowls ($8.99), Tostadas ($7.49) and Enchiladas ($9.49). Like its sister restaurants, Miami Lakes will also offer authentic Mexican sandwiches including Pepito ($9.99) – steak, chipotle beans, poblano rajas, Chihuahua cheese, chimichurri and arugula; and Veracruz ($9.99) – fish, chipotle beans, mango, cabbage, pickled onions, cilantro cream and arugula. A concept-wide belief, every Salsa Fiesta location resembles those of a fine dining serving restaurant, with the same quality but with the convenience of a fast casual restaurant. Guests can find the finest cuts of meats, fresh vegetables and daily housemade salsas in every bite. Diners can also wash down their bites with frozen margaritas,red and white wine and aguas frescas in horchata, tamarindo and Jamaica flavors.
Salsa Fiesta Miami Lakes will feature a retro vibe and décor unlike the urban design found in its sister locations. Local Wynwood artist Greg Gayle will hand paint the store’s walls, injecting an authentic Mexican feel into the 2,400 square-foot space. The 100-seat restaurant, offering ample indoor and outdoor seating, will be open seven days a week for lunch and dinner, Sunday – Thursday, 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m..
