Daniel del Prado and Aaron Switz, partners behind Josefina in Wayzata, have officially added a second project to a growing hospitality portfolio.
Located on idyllic Lake Minnetonka shores, Macanda, which originates from a combination of a mango tree coupled with a nod to Latin America's magical realism, offers dishes such as fried oyster tacos with celery remoulade, grilled king crab with carrot mayo and braised oxtail with black mole.
Culinarily-speaking, mangos are an original species with origins in Asia which have been highly adopted by Latin American cuisine, becoming a staple of their own in the region. While magical realism's literary concept brings to a reader vivid images of reality generously sprinkled with whimsy and majesty, both inspirations for Macanda aim a signal to guests of an eclectic mix of global flavors in a traditional Mexican structure.
In addition to a vast menu of unique and approachable food and cocktails set on beautiful Lake Minnetonka, Macanda is also home to a vinyl lounge and record bar, Macanda's HiFi.
