Mamitas

Mamita’s Restaurante Latino is a new latin-themed, Bring Your Own (BYO) restaurant in Newtown that re-imagines traditional latin fare with a fusion of unique tastes that will delight the palate.  Complementing a fresh menu that is updated regularly with seasonal specials, is an assortment of home-made drink mixes featuring pear, papaya, mango, blueberry, and other seasonal fruits that go well with Tequila.  That’s why at Mamita’s, they don’t say BYOB, they say BYOT where the “T” stands for Tequila!

A recent newcomer on the scene in Newtown, PA, we have frequented Mamitas on numerous occasions over the past year. And with each visit, our menu choices have been terrific! During our latest reservation, Russ thoroughly enjoyed his Steak Enchiladas al Molé while Lynn chose the delicious Pollo Borracho (and of course brought home a doggie bag for leftovers the following morning.)

From their website: When you visit Mamita’s you will experience Chef Argueta’s love of cooking, attention to detail and his commitment to delivering a memorable dining experience. Francisco’s desire to create his own fabulous dishes with his own flavors and quality ingredients motivated him to open his first restaurant – Florentino’s (in honor of his father). Florentino’s became a quick success with its unique Northern Italian inspired dishes. Francisco then found a stunning location on the river in Washington Crossing to provide guests with another opportunity to savor their favorite meals while enjoying a beautiful view at Francisco’s On The River.

It has been our pleasure to dine at all three of his restaurants with some regularity. I’ll be blogging about the other two in the future…
