About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Permanently Closed - Madrina, a new elevated dining restaurant concept from the Misery Loves Co. Restaurant Group (Sal Jafar, Michael Martensen, and Jeremy Hargrove) has won D Magazines Restaurant of the Year 2015 for Dallas, TX.

Chef David Fingerman's menu features Mexican dishes crafted via French techniques, such as hay-smoked foie gras made with jaggery, plantains, pepita and coconut; steak tartare with pickled papayas, dried jicama, capers, shallots and egg yolk; and okra-bell pepper ratatouille with masa crepe.

Michael Martensen (Proof + Pantry) is putting together a cocktail list of Mexican and French inspired drinks, and the wine menu will heavily feature French varietals.

Misery Loves Co. has partnered with design firm, Breckinridge Taylor, on the restaurant’s aesthetic. The space, like the food, will draw inspiration from Mexico and France — more specifically Paris and Mexico City.

We met up with some friends for New Year's Eve. Great prompt service, food cooked perfectly, nice sized servings, menu had new things not seen at all the other Dallas restaurants. All 4 of us agreed that Madrina is a "keeper". Will definitely be back.

The food was excellent, but I do think it is a little pricey. Two chardonnays were offered and one was $23/glass. Service was good but not up to the standards of the price paid.

It was just OK. Not memorable or impressive in any way.

Second time dining experience at Madrina and it continues to impress! Really enjoyed the fried settas, brussel sprouts!

This was my second visit to Madrina and it didn't disappoint. I was so happy to find that it was just as tasty the second time. The appetizers (guacamole and queso) were fresh and yummy. Entrees were unique and appealing. And I could go on and on about the service. Madrina might just become my new go-to spot!

Don't get me wrong, we love Madrina but there were some misses on our recent dinner. The filet came with frites that were soggy. The tortilla that accompanied the wild setas were cold and tasteless. The "tag team" servers can be confusing and sometimes overlap. Love the cocktails.

Second time I've been Madrina & absolutely love the cuisine. Had great service both times. My only complaint is my friend & I split an entree & they served me the entree & gave her a salad plate to put hers on. The waitress did split for us, but my friends portion looked horrible on the small plate! Very unappealing!
