Later this spring, a new Latin American eatery called Miriam Cocina Latina will debut in the restaurant formerly known as LARK on the Park.

The newest establishment from prolific restaurateur Shannon Wynne (Rodeo Goat, Flying Fish, Meddlesome Moth, and more) will debut at 2015 Woodall Rogers Freeway in May, right across from Klyde Warren Park. The restaurant takes its name from partner Miriam Jimenez, whom Wynne met when she was working in the kitchens of beloved Dallas Mexican restaurants Mesero and Mr. Mesero.

“Miriam is in charge. We need another Mexican restaurant in Dallas like we need another hole in the head. But what we don’t have enough of is that feeling I had when I walked into that fashionable Mexican restaurant years ago,” Wynne said in a statement. “Recognition, love and appreciation from the second I entered. We hope to change this soon.” No details on what Miriam Cocina Latina will serve just yet, but a representative confirms that diners can expect a menu of classic Mexican dishes.

Stay tuned for an official opening date for Miriam Cocina Latina sometime in May.
