Cicada Cantina isn't your typical Mexican restaurant. That's because its kitchen takes time-tested recipes and puts a modern spin on them, creating unique dishes such as blue-corn tacos and enchiladas stuffed with portobello mushrooms. The cocktails get the same update, with bartenders blending more than 75 tequilas into signature margaritas flavored with unexpected ingredients such as jalapeño, white peach, and seasonal berries.
Of course, the restaurant's atmosphere is just as atypical as its food. The decor is both contemporary and rustic, with weathered benches, Mexican-inspired textiles, and colorful light fixtures. There's even occasional DJ music to inject the space with extra energy.
