Cuisine: American, Latin, Mexican, Tex-Mex
Tucked into a side street amid the charming brick-lined lanes of Winter Park's Park Avenue neighborhood sits Cocina 214. The "214" is a nod to the Dallas area � this is a Tex-Mex/Mexican establishment, an upscale setting for business, for date night, for happy hour - as many of the area's margarita-imbibing proponents will attest. Its low-lit intimate bar area has seats for dining, an expansive dining room is clean, bright and contemporary and a private room is available for events, as well. A lovely patio makes a beautiful location to take advantage of Central Florida's oft-stellar weather, along with warm, fresh chips, zingy salsa and an impressive array of creative and classic favorites. Mexican joints are often uber-casual (and we love this, of course), but Cocina 214 is an excellent option for leveled-up atmosphere when you're in the mood.
