In July 2021, the highly-anticipated restaurant from Chef Sophina Uong and husband/partner William “Wildcat” Greenwell opened its doors. With a vibrant bar and lounge, a lively dining room, and an interactive Chef’s Counter, Mister Mao immediately situated itself as the perfect perch to gather with friends and family for an evening of creative, “inauthentic” food and killer cocktails.
The “tropical roadhouse” flavors and rotating menu allows the Cambodian-American Chef to showcase her creative dissection of the Southern plate. The whimsically themed menu is sectioned off into categories.

And now one year later, Mister Mao celebrates their one-year anniversary with a special three-course anniversary prix-fixe dinner & celebratory spritz, available July 14 – 31 for dinner only.
Every guest who visits for dinner during the two-week celebration can imbibe with a complimentary Passionfruit Jubilee – a festive welcome spritz featuring Chinola passion fruit liqueur and bubbles. Diners, whether first time visitors or loyal clients, can enjoy the regular a la carte dinner menu or celebrate with a special three-course meal, priced at $50 per person (excluding tax and gratuity).
