Mariposa at The Mint Museum

The new Mariposa restaurant is officially open! 

Mariposa not only has amazing food, but a sleek and fresh ambiance as well. Founder Jill Marcus believes that food and art are capable of bridging gaps and bringing the world closer together – you can see that at Mariposa.

We got to try some pieces from the carefully curated menu, and we were impressed!

The Chipotle Crusted Short Ribs with aji sweet potatoes and chimichrrui were melt in your mouth amazing.

The Lamb Belly Bulgogi Lettuce Wraps with seared lamb belly, sticky rice, kimchi slaw, roasted peanuts and sweet miring sauce are sure to please any food lover!

The two sides we tried were Charred Shishitos and Tandoori Spiced Cauliflower – both were delicious! Don’t forget to try the Aix En Provence cocktail with Empress Gin, Cremant d’Alsace, housemade lavender Syrup and fresh lemon juice!

The menu is based on the owner’s travels around the globe and are meant to be shared and experienced around the table! We definitely recommend booking a table at Mariposa for a world class dining experience that is excitingly different than other places around town!

You can book your reservation now on their website!
