Cantina Taqueria & Tequila Bar
Venue says Bottomless Brunch is back! Add it for $12.95 for 60 mins. It's a Harlem Thing -Mimosas, Margarita and Sangria.

Though Cantina opened as a simple neighborhood bar that just so happened to sell tacos, it soon expanded to offer everything from nachos to rice bowls to burritos. Start with a classic frozen margarita ($10.95) or Corona ($4.95) and a dip sampler of queso, guacamole and three house salsas ($11.95). Then, choose from the extensive menu of Mexican favorites, like a chili-lime chicken rice bowl ($12.95), a pulled pork and pineapple burrito ($12.95) or three of the many varieties of tacos made with fresh corn tortillas (all $15.95). In addition to the pulled pork and chicken, there’s also  brisket, grilled steak, baja fish and sriracha shrimp. Snack on a side of elotes, or Mexican street corn with crema and cotija cheese, or sweet plantains (both $4.95). Deal seekers might want to stop by for their happy hour from 3 to 7pm on weekdays to score $5 guacamole, $6 margaritas and $2.95 tacos.

Cantina Taqueria & Tequila Bar says
Cantina was created in 2012 & opened in 2013. We opened the original location at 1838 7th Ave, at 111th St in lower Harlem, NYC, just a block north of Central Park in a historic residential neighborhood. It was originally called Cantina 1838. Fun Fact: Because of its recessed entrance, the floor and ceilings had to be lowered & raised, respectively, to adhere to NYC building regulations. A staircase also had to be specially designed & relocated. We opened with a simple concept - a local bar that happened to sell tacos. To spread the word and attract people to a rather unusual location, Cantina launched a Happy-Hour program that would soon be the talk of Harlem. Building on Success: Cantina was so well received we quickly added Rice Bowls, Burritos, Appetizers, Desserts, and expanded our beer, liquor, & tequila selection. We began offering delivery and launched our website plus social media platforms. In the Spring of 2016, Cantina dropped the "1838" from the name. With this came a new logo, & overall theme to the branding of the restaurant. The name was officially changed to Cantina Taqueria & Tequila Bar. Expansion:In October 2016, we officially announced the opening of our second location in Harlem on Lenox & 126th St. This location is in the heart of Harlem's buzzing commercial district parallel to the 125th St corridor. We'll offer beer-on-tap, frozen margs, plus all the other menu items you've come to love. This location will also feature seasonal sidewalk seating.
