Cantina Nueva has plenty of the margaritas and classic dishes that have made its sister restaurant Garduño’s such a local classic, but it also has some creative new dishes that set it apart. The addition of fresh greens, pickled red onions, smoky molé sauce and herb-infused cremas makes for a pleasant surprise in a culinary landscape filled with one-note enchiladas and the like. Sit at the bar and order a few of the creative and tasty street tacos for lunch, or get the chicken molé enchiladas for dinner. And don’t forget a margarita.
Alibi recommends: Any of the tacos, red chile mango margarita and the avocado toast
Vibe: Friendly, casual and a good happy hour haven
