La Cantina Grill’s culinary craftspeople charbroil steaks, seafood, and veggies for a menu of authentic regional Mexican cuisine that pairs well with the bar’s 13 margarita flavors and 150 varieties of premium tequila. To whet anxious appetites, bartenders shake up 19-ounce margaritas in fruity flavors such as mango, kiwi, passion fruit, and fun-size Skittles. Make company for sour sips with fresh ceviche, guacamole, or house-made corn tamales sided with sour cream and queso fresco. Headlining the entree menu are four moles whose flavorful characters are as complex as a Tolstoy heroine’s computer password; the tilapia al mojo de ajo swims in a green mole dappled with pumpkin seeds, tomatillos, cilantro, and serrano chilies. A 12-ounce seared flank steak presents itself as the grilled arrachera, and grill-masters roast a half-chicken before plating it with beans, guacamole, and a side salad to create the pollo a la parrilla.
A favorite haunt of White Sox players and other local celebrities, La Cantina Grill professes a duality of décor principles, balancing the rustic charm that percolates from its fireplace with the elegance of the high heels that clack against its tiled floors. Every Friday, live entertainment storms the stage to play tunes festive enough to charm the candy out of a piñata.
