About

Mio is an all-encompassing approach to food, life and love.

Affectionately called the "Embassy of Latin America in DC," Mio has captured the hearts and palates of DC's most influential Latin Americans with a convivial table and open-kitchen culture.

Inspired by the Mio family of foodies who join us for dinner to connect with friends, culture and the flavors they left back home, we have set out to push the boundaries of traditional dishes with fresh creativity and are excited to share the launch of our "Cocina Abierta" concept with renowned Puerto Rican Chef and friend Giovanna Huyke as our resident Chef for 2012. Our new Cocina Abierta menu combines casual and familiar with creative and authentic.

Chef Huyke has curated a unique menu from Latin America's most influential cuisine capitals into dishes that are sophisticated in flavor yet true to their origins. In our kitchen all are welcome, the summers on the beach in the Caribbean, a Sunday parillada, the corner taqueria, cevicheria, lechonera and the arepera all in one place because we believe that there is a Chef for a Day in all of us.

Being Latin is not required to enjoy Mio but once here you will find that a part of you already is.

Bienvenidos, la Cocina esta abierta! Welcome, the Kitchen is open!

Editorial Reviews

Review - Mio Restaurant - Washington, DC
Tom Sietsema, Washington Post Magazine | October 21, 2012

Mofongo is in short supply in Washington. But the chance to dig into garlicky mashed plantains is far from the only reason to seek out the always-sunny Mio, best known for its Friday night Puerto Rican feast, in which a whole suckling pig is roasted to a mouth-watering mahogany hue, brittle skin clinging to succulent flesh.
