In 2022, Create Cooking School co-owners Erasmo "Ras" Casiano and Diego Coconati opened this Latin eatery that specializes in the food on which the two were raised — which includes dishes inspired by Mexico, Argentina, Peru, Venezuela, Puerto Rico and Miami. Named for Casiano's mother, the restaurant is a labor of love, with a bright and airy decor and a menu that includes hit after hit, from the mofongo to mussels with chorizo and the ever-changing weekend-only paella.
