Most of us were surprised when Michael Marx, former owner of Blue Agave in Federal Hill, sold his Mexican restaurant and tequileria because he was tired of the grind and then a little more than a year later was back, opening Rub, a Texas barbecue place in South Baltimore. That was three or four years ago.
I guess Mexican food is in Marx's blood, because a couple of weeks ago he opened Miguel's Cocina y Cantina in Silo Point. ...
I talked to Marx about the project last May, and at that time he told me it would feature regional Mexican dishes and tapas-style plates. Of course, he also thought it would open in August, which is par for the course.
Here's what the press release says: "With its high ceilings and encased in concrete, steel and glass, Miguel's serves up a delicious array of small plates along with eclectic Mexican entrees in an atmosphere that is both playful and dramatic."
One of my favorite things is that you can take the water taxi to get to Miguel's.
If anyone has eaten there, I hope you'll let us know and tell us what you thought about it. Please post below.
And what do you think of the Web site welcome page?
