Founded by Alex Falco and Huimin Zhu, Minty Z has been offering healthy plant-based Asian fusion cuisine in Coconut Grove for about two years. And now the restaurant is preparing to serve up its “plant-based dim sum, far east baked goods, creative power foods and seasonal produce” in Midtown Miami.

“We think it’s a great location,” CEO & Executive Chef Alex Falco told What Now in a phone conversation on Monday morning. He cited the centrality of the location and its proximity to some already-existing clientele as reasons for the move into Midtown.

Falco is an established chef and hospitality professional with experience working with concepts like Zuma, BLT Steak, Nusr’Et, and Maloney & Porcelli.

The dinner menu at Minty Z’s Coconut Grove location opens with small plates like Smashed Cucumber Salad, Sesame Seitan “Wings,” and Buckwheat Scallion Pancake. Veggie dishes include Cauliflower Kimchi, Wok-Fried Wild Mushrooms, and General Tso’s Brussels. On the Dim Sum side are Classic Bao Buns (signature steamed buns with prosperity beef filling & Coconut yogurt sauce), Vegan Shrimp Shumai, and Ube Sweet Potato Bao.

Minty Z Midtown is preparing to open this spring with a menu that Falco says may feature some small changes from that of the Coconut Grove location, but will provide the same essential experience.

“People can expect to find the same level of food, service, and quality they get in Coconut Grove,” Falco said.
