Miti Miti Taperia, the new tapas bar from the owners of local favorite Bogota Latin Bistro, has officially opened at 138 5th Avenue, between Douglass and Baltic Streets, following a soft-opening period over the past couple weeks.
As they note on their menu, the new restaurant’s name is short for “Mitad y Mitad,” which in Spanish means “sharing,” so the small plates are meant for nipping at with friends.
“With this in mind, we wish to ‘share’ Miti Miti Taperia with the community,” they write.
The shareable dishes include items like roasted pumpkin hummus ($6), Spanish seafood salad ($9), bacalao croquetas ($8.50), plus choices of cheeses and charcuterie, salads, a few desserts, and more. They note that they’ll be adding paellas, more seafood, and seafood, lamb, rabbit, steak, and more veggie dishes in the weeks ahead.
They’re open Monday-Friday from 4-11pm and Saturday-Sunday from 2-11pm. They take reservations online or by phone at 718-230-3760.
Taking the same approach as they do with Bogota, Miti Miti is also clearly aiming to be very community-minded. The first step to being open to neighbors: They’re welcoming feedback. So if you’ve stopped by already, they’ll welcome your thoughts about your experience at email@example.com.
And definitely share those thoughts below too — we’d love to hear how it is before we get a chance to stop by!
