La Sirena Gorda closes
Sad news for seafood fans. La Sirena Gorda, beloved perennial Best of the Twin Cities winner, has closed. Yesterday marked its last day in service. A shocked fan alerted us to the news as she placed her final lunch order. We rushed down to Midtown Global Market and confirmed the news. They were packing up and shutting down.
While there are plenty of other tasty tacos to be had inside Midtown Global Market, La Sirena Gorda (the Fat Mermaid) had the best fish. Other favorites included the garlic shrimp and the ceviche - which we declared last year as one of our top 100 Favorite Meals.
No news yet on what the future holds for Alfonso Menendez, the owner of La Sirena Gorda and onetime owner of Babalu. We wish him big and tasty things in his future.
