First annual celebration at the Latin kitchen offers special menu in April

New Orleans, LA  – Spring in New Orleans brings no shortage of bustling social activity. Celebrations and festivals of all kinds constitute a nonstop nature that leaves many of us exhausted. Respite comes in the form of Taco Therapy at Mizado Latin Kitchen on Pontchartrain Boulevard; the Latin eatery is offering a specially curated, taco-centric menu throughout the month of April.

For a restaurant already serving up unexpected taco creations such as Pato (Duck) featuring pineapple melon salsa and Seta (Mushroom) with whipped goat cheese, the Taco Therapy celebration simply packs twice the punch. Limited-time menu items will capitalize on some of Louisiana’s most beloved dishes (alligator, anyone?), combined with the option to enjoy specific offerings family-style – meaning any tight-knit crew with similar taco tastes has an excuse to come together at Mizado.

From Saturday, April 1 to Sunday, April 30, Mizado fans can curl up on the couch (err, patio), share their feelings and enjoy the following Taco Therapy dishes:
