More than two years after the closure of downtown Charleston burrito spot Minero, Neighborhood Dining Group, will reopen the Mexican restaurant at 3140 Maybank Highway on Thursday, June 9.
Chef Shamil Velazquez (also of Delaney Oyster House) will bring back Minero favorites like the charcoal-grilled wings covered in Valentina hot sauce, benne salsa, and the super-stuffed burrito covered in Oaxaca cheese. (These were staples of the menu, back when chef Sean Brock opened the restaurant in 2014.) Velazquez added new menu items to the lineup, like fajitas, Yucatan-style fish with pibil sauce, shrimp and snapper ceviche, and a breakfast burrito on the weekends.
Behind the bar, Minero returns with the frozen El Satanico cocktail and adds a frosé sangria.
The space is light and airy with Oaxacan alebrijes (wooden figures) decorating the walls. The climate-controlled patio is bright with neon orange and green seats surrounded by plenty of plants.
Minero be open from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday and from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Seating is first-come, first-served.
