Video Interview with Manuel of Mio Restaurant

Guest Video Post by Tina McCormack Beaty

Mio's owner Manuel Iguina talks about his vision for food and wine in his five year old establishment.  He buys the food local and from small producers to bring the flavors of Spain, Latin America, France and America to the table.  Iguina explains that "integrity in food is important." The food is complimented by a list of 20 wines by the glass and over 300 bottles currently grouped by grape but coming soon the wine list will be re-vamped to be showcased by region. At Mio the wine list changes with the menu and as wines become mainstream, Iguina explores to discover new types, producers, and makers.  When asked how he chooses which wines to bring into Mio: "If I like it, it's on the menu and it is important that the wine be a good value, accessible to customers," remarks Iguina.
