“The Liquid Chef” Junior Merino is the Executive Chef at M Cantina in Dearborn, MI. Merino’s approach to food and drink is steeped in history, familial connections, and sensory exploration. Calling M Cantina, “a Mexican restaurant,” is only part of the story. Yes, Merino is cooking Mexican food, but his explanation of what that means to him is as layered and complex as his food.
