Highland eatery Mi Cocina to move to San Manuel Village

Mi Cocina, a Mexican restaurant in Highland, is scheduled to hold a grand opening May 2 at its new location at San Manuel Village, which is also in Highland.

The restaurant has previously done business north of the Base Line and Church Street intersection in eastern Highland.

The San Manual Band of Mission Indians’ development unit, Victoria Development LLC, developed the San Manuel Village as a retail and commercial center to diversify their economic interests beyond San Manuel Indian Bingo & Casino.

Hampton Inn & Suites, the development’s key tenant, opened at the center in September 2008.
