Mio Restaurant Review

: This lively Vermont Avenue NW restaurant offers authentic Latin American food and cocktails, such as mojitos, caipirinhas and margaritas. Owner Manuel Iguina and chef Wilo Benet showcase Puerto Rican fare, and both have cooked in Puerto Rican establishments. They present what they call “La Cocina Abierta,” or “The Open Kitchen.” What that means for patrons is that they can enjoy Benet’s cooking, a mix of Latin, classical French, Thai, Chinese and Spanish, all with a Puerto Rican focus. The place is the setting for “lechon Fridays,” which is when patrons can literally pig out. The atmosphere is so easygoing that folks make this an after-hours destination, resulting in a very active bar scene.
