During the course of more than a dozen years, Monica Dimas has gone from starting her career in Yakima, Washington to settling and growing in Seattle. Her career took off once she hit Campagne where Daisley Gordon showed Dimas clarity of vision, maturity and balance. From Campange to Spinasse, to Monsoon, to Mkt, Dimas' fine-dining acumen was leading fatefully to starting her own unique eatery company - Milkwood & Co. The inaugural pop-up was conceived as Neon Taco as a Sunday hangover brunch inside of local bar Nacho Borracho, where later Dimas was approached to give Neon Taco it's permanent home. Dimas' take on food is meticulous and progressive, traits pulled from her many years in the the fine dining scene, while still providing excellent food to a wide audience at an accessible price point.
Dimas is now the chef/operator of Milkwood & Co, her umbrella company to three successful Capitol Hill eateries - Tortas Condesa a walk up window specializing in Mexico City style sandwiches, Sunset Fried Chicken a Charleston, SC inspired fried chicken sandwich counter inside of RGB 12th ave, and Neon Taco a progressive Mexican food counter inside of Nacho Borracho.
