Mariposa at the Mint

Offering world-to-table dining in the heart of Uptown, Mariposa is a space for friends old and new to connect and share in the enjoyment of everyday foods and cocktails from across the globe. 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 delicious dishes from a variety of countries and cultures that are complemented by an impressive buvette list made up of lush and creative craft cocktails and a masterfully curated wine list. Mariposa is a reminder that the culinary arts are fine arts, and they bring the world together.

Travel the world, without leaving Uptown. Now serving lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch — served with a side of smooth jazz! Make a reservation, here.
