Mi Cocina Highland Park Village to Close for Six Weeks

Everybody panic!

Dear reader, I come to you with some news that may leave you feeling uneasy and perhaps a bit lost. But before you succumb to the agony and stomp your feet like a petulant child, keep this in mind: this pain will be temporary. Like a bee sting (provided you aren’t allergic) or a stress-induced migraine.

Ready? Deep breath. Mi Cocina Highland Park Village is closing after this Sunday for six weeks.

It’s been 20 years since the restaurant last revamped its decor, and they’ve decided that it’s time for a re-fresh. Our Caitlin Clark will have a story on the new interior next week. The Mi Cocina food truck will be planted in the Highland Park Village lot, so you can snag tacos there. Also, the newly-renovated Monkey Bar, which is located above the restaurant on the third floor, opens this weekend. They’re not serving the full Mi Cocina menu there, but they are offering things like a shrimp cocktail and nachos and some high-end tequila cocktails. Plus, there’s a new terrace.

Still short of breath? Gosh, darn it. You really are sensitive. Don’t worry. Six weeks will fly by. (Looking at you, Troy Aikman.) Plus, if you’re really that desperate for a Mambo Taxi and a bowl of chile con queso, the West Village location is a mere 2.4 miles away. That’s an eight minute car ride, 14 minute bike ride, and 46 minute walk (you could probably cut that down to 30 minutes if you don’t dawdle).
