Mariposa at the Mint
Offering world-to-table dining in the heart of Uptown, Mariposa is a space for renewed connection between friends old and new to share in the enjoyment of everyday foods and cocktails from across the world. Founder and owner of Mother Earth Group, Jill Marcus, thoughtfully crafted the menu at Mariposa based on her own travel experiences and with the understanding that the best way to learn about a different culture is by getting a taste of their tradition, through cuisine.
Executive Chef Jonathan Moore leads the kitchen as they serve up dishes from Pork Belly Bulgogi Lettuce Wraps to Piri Piri Chicken to Gullah Paella, and more, while Level 3 Sommelier and General Manager, Brad Grubb, dreams up lush cocktails and keeps an impressive, curated wine list. Mariposa is a reminder that the culinary arts are fine arts, and they bring the world together.
