Tequila Mockingbird first opened it’s restored doors in August 2016. Once a paddington terrace, now a cozy but energetic Latin American Restaurant  impressively designed by Luchetti Krelle (Bar Brose, The Centennial, Acme and The Butler). The team itself are a host of hospitality professionals, it's this unique team that transforms Tequila Mockingbird from a restaurant, to an experience. 


Owner - Michael Fegent

Inspired by his favourite New York based Mexican restaurant La Esquina, and experience with Peruvian cuisine during his time at Sake, Michael Fegent began the Tequila Mockingbird venture in 2014. Michael ventured through South America identifying stand out elements of Latin American cuisine and developing those flavours into a bold Latin American menu with a modern twist. Michael values hospitality and all it encapsulates, it's this value that acts as the driving force behind the outstanding service and world-class menu on offer at Tequila Mockingbird. 

Head Chef - John Frid

After owner Michael Fegent had established the initial menu concept for Tequila Mockingbird he set to work acquiring the talent that could transform his vision to plate. Leading the Tequila Mockingbird kitchen is executive chef John Frid. 

Between heading the kitchen for the 2010 IOC Toronto Olympic bid and leading the team into service at the 2000 JUNO music awards, John has acquired a broad repertoire of experience and knowledge that is reflected in the high quality menu offering we serve at Tequila Mockingbird.
