First it was November, then the end of January. Now, it’s June.

For Mi Casa Es Su Casa, debuting on time was difficult. Its revised January launch date ultimately sat on ice for an additional five months. Here we are in June – the restaurant newcomer at 140 Orchard Street finally opened its doors to the community last Thursday. We ambled past last night to see a half-full room of diners. Not too bad for a summer Sunday evening.
