Since opening its doors in 2015, Bodega Taqueria y Tequila has been revered as one of the hottest Mexican restaurants in America. Founded by Menin Hospitality’s Keith Menin and Jared Galbut and led by Culinary Director Bernie Matz, Bodega’s unexpected and exciting locally-inspired twists – in food, environment and experience – have led to its expansion to four sought-after locations throughout South Florida.
Bodega Taqueria y Tequila’s original location can be found steps away from famed Lincoln Mall on 16th street. Offering traditional Mexican favorites as well as unconventional and innovative interpretations, Bodega specializes in tacos and tortas, homemade sodas and authentic beverages in a dynamic, eclectic “puebla” inspired setting. Disguised behind a meat locker door, the no-name speakeasy behind Bodega comes alive at night, serving up Miami’s best tequila and cocktails in an environment that brings the fabric of the community together – artists and musicians, locals and travelers alike – for late night conversation, performances and fun.
