The 3,000-square-foot restaurant and 1,500-square-foot indoor/outdoor patio feature the same favorite dishes as the downtown location, but also offers a bigger menu, brunch and late-night eats. The new location also has full-service bar. Maciel’s Highland also offers catering and delivery to Midtown and East Memphis.

Maciel’s Highland was formed by a partnership between Manny Martinez, the proprietor of Maciel’s Downtown on Main, and the ITS Fine Restaurant Group which includes Bounty on Broad, Railgarten, Loflin Yard and Rec Room and is spearheaded by principals Taylor Berger, John Planchon and Martha Hample.

“We’re grateful to be in the hearts of Memphians and part of the community,” said Martinez. “The support shown to us over the past year has been overwhelming, and in return, makes us want to keep investing in Memphis.  I’m thrilled to bring the flavors of my home state Michoacán, Mexico to my friends east of Downtown Memphis.”

The bar will be stocked with fresh-squeezed fruit juices and premium tequilas and mezcals for cocktails like the margarita, paloma, barrel-aged mezcal negroni and mezcal mojitos. The bar also has an extensive “Cantina Cocktail” menu featuring drinks one would find in the street markets of Mexico, like the Changuirango, Banderita and Vampiro.
