Created by the Atomic Group, known for popular Coral Gables eateries such as Crema Gourmet Espresso Bar and Copper 29, Plomo emulates a Mexican-style speakeasy. It offers a dimly lit atmosphere with colorful skulls painted on the walls, cacti set on tables, and a plant-covered ceiling.
Though many details about Plomo's debut are under wraps, a sneak peek at the menu reveals a restaurant centered on tacos. There are 11 varieties, packed with chicken, steak, pork, seafood, egg, or vegetables on a choice of tortilla.
Try the El Muro, stuffed with pork al pastor, pineapple, onions, and cilantro; the El Guero, packed with with beer-battered shrimp, creamy chipotle aioli, and pickled onions; the El No Mames, with potato, eggs, and chorizo; and the El Taco Volador, filled with salmon or tuna tartare, habanero salsa, and chipotle aioli. Tacos range from $3 to $4.50 each. Other options include salads, large Mexican-inspired plates to share, and a selection of desserts.
Plomo's expansive bar will stock more than 65 tequilas and mezcals. Happy hour, ladies' night, Taco Tuesday, a weekend brunch, and other weekly events are expected soon.
The opening, which is slated for sometime in July, will mark Miracle Mile's first taco and tequila joint.
