Here comes Miro, Downtown’s newest destination restaurant, landing tomorrow at the corner of Wilshire and Figueroa. The Financial District outpost was previously home to the power lunch and dinner crowds from the offices nearby, but has slowly been transforming into a bright haven for whiskey, charcuterie, and pasta.

Tyler Dow, formerly the GM at Faith & Flower, is in part behind the hotly anticipated new venture, which has opened up the building’s hulking front facade with loads of floor-to-ceiling glass. Chef Gavin Mills, who previously spent time at places like Tavern, is also working hard at Miro, turning out housemade charcuterie and freshly prepared pastas for the masses. The plan is to bring a truly market-driven sensibility to the menu at Miro, using only seasonal ingredients from a handful of farmers markets every week.

Downstairs, beverage director Josh Allen (also of Faith & Flower) has worked with Dow to craft a thorough collection of rare, vintage, and notable whiskies from around the world. There’s a second bar wrapped in brick and outfitted with a small collection of leather couches, meant to be a destination for serious drinkers and a casual place for newcomers alike.

The lunch, dinner, and cocktail menus for Miro are below. The restaurant opens tomorrow for lunch by reservation only, before moving into both lunch and dinner next week (both reservation only). Miro will eventually take walk ins once they work all the kinks out of service.
