Taqueria Coyo Taco presents new location on Giralda Plaza in the heart of Coral Gables, open daily for lunch, dinner, and late-night dining from 11 a.m.-2 a.m. The outpost features Coyo Tacos’ signature recipes including authentic tacos, burritos, handmade tortillas, aguas frescas, and more served in a traditional taqueria setting prepared with a “Todo es Fresco” philosophy. The new location will house a speakeasy featuring live DJ’s nightly and an expansive selection of more than 50 tequilas and mezcals.
Similar to the design of its flagship location in Wynwood, Coyo Taco’s Coral Gables restaurant’s décor embodies a traditional industrial-style taqueria storefront complete with signature blue mural artwork and bright tile accents plus a breezy outdoor patio seating area on Giralda. Once inside and through a set of discreet “employee” doors, guests will discover an intimate speakeasy set to be open nightly with special programming.
The menu will focus on bold, traditional flavors using sustainable ingredients with a variety of home-cooked dishes, fresh tortillas made from scratch, and guacamole prepared in-house daily. Highlights for the Coral Gables location include Grouper Frito with Modelo beer-battered Florida Grouper, roasted jalapeño aioli, avocado; Al Pastor made with a traditional trompo pork (vertical rotisserie), roasted pineapple, onion; Pastor de Pollo with marinated chicken, roasted pineapple, onion, cotija; and for a vegetarian option there is a Quinoa Taco with quinoa and queso “falafel”. More guest favorites include made-to-order Guacamole, and Burritos and Quesadillas, served with a choice of carnitas de pato, camaron, hongos y huitaloche and much more.
Beverage selections at the taqueria will include traditional Agua Frescas, imported Mexican bottled sodas and beers. In the lounge, guests will be able to choose from more than 50 tequilas and mezcal varieties, all of which can be mixed into the speakeasy’s inventive cocktails.
