This past April in North Bay Village, Anna Robbins opened 222 Taco, a colorful fine-casual joint complete with a full-service bar called La Margarita Shop.
Now she's ready to unveil brunch. Offered from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, the menu includes a mix of sweet and savory Mexican plates with a breakfast twist.
Standouts are the aguacate toast, in which smashed avocados are topped with a guacamole spread and Tajín on toasted bolillo; huevos rancheros, two fried eggs on a bed of tortilla with black beans, salsa ranchera, and queso; and pan de concha, Mexican French toast topped with cinnamon and crema. Pricing is affordable, averaging between $3 to $10.

Robbins is also behind a slate of cocktails, including micheladas, chipotle bloody marys, and strawberry mimosas.
Measuring about 4,000 square feet and connected to a large patio, New Times' 2018 Best Taco winner is decorated with bright Oaxacan tiles, Mexican embroidery, and neon signage, creating a warm and comfortable environment. A cooler offers grab-and-go salads and drinks, and a corner displays branded shirts and hats, including a pink tank top screen-printed with the eatery's skull mascot wearing a hat that reads, "Nacho friend."
