DJ Flores

Milpa combines a molino and cafe-style restaurant serving contemporary Mexican food with different grain and roasted vegetables bowls. “Our mission is to bring a better alternative to Mexican cuisine with sourcing better ingredients from farms and using the highest quality heirloom corn for our in house-made, stone-ground masas and tortillas,” Flores says.
Las Vegas native DJ Flores got a head start in the restaurant world when he began working at age 16. He’s worked under chefs such as José Andrés, Aitor Zabala, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, and Lorena Garcia during his career, and then moved to Mexico City to become a stagiere for Jorge Vallejo’s acclaimed restaurant, Quintonil, which helped him come up with the cuisine at Milpa.
