Cantina

In southern Park Slope, you’ll find owner Esteban Chauca’s dark and sultry Mexican restaurant with 13 margarita flavors and more than 30 varieties of specialty tequilas. Chef Epifanio Sanchez makes “chiles rellenos,” a mild poblano chili stuffed with cheese, battered to a crisp and topped with a dollop of chili sauce made with tomato, jalapeno and a touch of the pungent herb epazote. For the “chiles en nogada,” he fills a poblano pepper with picadillo, a mixture of ground beef, finely chopped onion, grated orange peel and dark raisins, and coats it in a tangy, nutty, light sauce topped with pomegranate seeds. In addition to a daily happy hour, from 4 pm-7 pm, there are deals on alcoholic drinks available daily. Cantina’s weekend brunch includes Mexican delights such as huevos rancheros and empanadas de guava, and your choice of beverage. Open daily for lunch and dinner, and for brunch on weekends from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm. Sidewalk cafe seating also available.
