Modern #305 Mexican 3 star review- Miami Herald


WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED WHILE WE MOVE TO A NEW LOCATION ON SOUTH BEACH.  CHECK BACK OR FOLLOW US ON TWITTER FOR THE NEW LOCATION INFO. THANK YOU!

A Destination

Centro Taco will be a place to try new ways of familiar flavors.  Chef Hales will interpret Mexican recipes in his own style creating something fresh and new for Miami.   The menu will be influenced by South Florida and what makes #305 a great food city.   The taco will be the bridge between the two great food cultures. 

The interior will be designed by Chef Hales and just like his design at Blackbrick Chinese will be modern, whimsical and edgy.   Childhood hero's will again dominate the walls and grafiti art will play its part.  

Centro Taco will be a table service restaurant and will serve lunch, dinner & brunch to start with taco breakfast & late night taco parties coming after opening.   Beer & wine to start and full liquor in the works.  

Tortilla making

Our tortillas will be made in house and to order, hot and fresh.  Centro will be grinding the maize and pressing the tortillas to order.   Its difficult to get it right but better.  

Pantry

Our pantry will be filled with Centro made spice blends & salsas.   Produce, seafood & meat will be sourced from Florida farms and waters.    

CHef owner

Richard Hales

Chef Hales will be leading the team with his Chef de cuisine James Seyba.  Centro Taco adds to Chef Hales successful and delicious restaurants, Sakaya Kitchen, Blackbrick Chinese & Dim Ssam a gogo food truck catering.
