Progress at Minero
Progress at Minero
Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas.

Future taco worship hall Minero stripped their windows bare so that anyone walking by may catch a glimpse of the progress inside. Those peeking through the glass at 155 East Bay St. will see an almost-polished interior full of light wood, mirrors, and what appears to be vintage church pews or school benches. Airy and casual, it's a very different scene than the rich mahogany look of adjoining restaurant McCrady's (both are part of The Neighboorhood Dining Group).

The minds behind Minero have not yet released a menu or opening date, but if you stalk chef Sean Brock's Instagram enough, it's evident that Mexican-influenced infatuations will soon be upon the Holy City.
