Heights-Area The El Cantina Superior to Open June 10

More Tex-Mex is on its way to town, this time it comes courtesy of local restaurateur Ken Bridge, the Delicious Concepts owner who isn't pausing to enjoy the success of his many Pink's Pizza locations, his diner Lola, his beer bar and restaurant Shepherd Park Draught House or his burger and beer spot Witchcraft Tavern & Provisions. The Gastronaut reports that Bridge's latest project The El Cantina Superior will be opening June 10.

The El Cantina will stand in the space that once housed 1940s gas station Conoco, at the corner of Studewood and White Oak, facing Little Woodrow's on one side and Fitzgerald's on the other. With vintage memorabilia filling the space and extending to the outside of the building, the restaurant's namesake can be found just above the entrance: When a fan of Bridge's projects asked where the name came from, granted that "el" already means "the" in Spanish, the explanation is that the "big boss has a really cool, classic El Camino, which he started calling 'The El' for short. And here we are." The new spot will serve classic Tex-Mex staples, fajitas and melted cheese-topped enchiladas alongside margaritas. Chef David Coffman, who left Goro & Gun shortly after its debut last year, will be consulting on the menu here and at Bridge's other concepts.
