Mizado Latin Kitchen (5080 Pontchartrain Blvd., 504-885-5555; www.mizadolatinkitchen.com) will close June 4 and be replaced by a Zea Rotisserie and Grill in fall 2017, according to a statement on the Taste Buds Management website (www.tastebudsmgmt.com).
Taste Buds created Semolina pasta restaurants and Zea Rotisserie restaurants. Partners Gary Darling, Hans Limburg and Greg Reggio opened Mizado in September 2013. It features creative takes on Mexican favorites and Latin dishes. The menu includes traditional tacos and creative versions with Peking duck, charred rare tuna and kale, mushrooms and goat cheese. There also are original takes on salsas, tamales and ceviches. Some of the items may appear as specials at the Zea restaurant, according to the statement.
The group also announced plans to open a Zea restaurant in Denham Springs within a year. — WILL COVIELLO
