It’s about to get hipper in historic Downtown Himmarshee Village as Jey Hospitality Group launches their newest restaurant collaboration with TMEX Cantina’s Chuck Bergwin. TacoCraft taqueria & tequila bar is Fort Lauderdale’s very first taqueria, with chef-driven interpretations of authentic tacos in an upscale casual dining experience. Once known for its party scene (the last remnant of spring break), Downtown Himmarshee Village is earning the reputation as a foodie and craft cocktail aficionados’ hang out.
Overseeing the kitchen is Robbyns Martinez, corporate chef at JEY Hospitality, with Mexican native Jaime Diaz leading as executive chef. This creative team showcases modern interpretations with a farm to table approach towards Mexican comfort foods. Fresh, local and sustainable ingredients are at the core of their recipes, while the authentic tortillas are handcrafted by Mexican senoras taught by their mothers and grandmothers over the generations.
The Mixologist inspired bar menu features over 100 tequilas, handcrafted margaritas, and dozens of Mexican beers as well as highlighting local breweries from Wynwood and Fort Lauderdale. Tequila based cocktails will be crafted with fresh ingredients such as habaneros, pickled jalapenos, exotic fruits and house infusions. Read more in my BITES column at Go Riverwalk Magazine HERE.
