Cantina Laredo, the gourmet Mexican concept operated by Dallas-based Consolidated Restaurant Operations, will set up shop in the ground floor of the Icon building in The Gulch.
With 24 restaurants in eight states, Cantina Laredo serves a menu based on the flavors of Mexico City, with fresh fish and steaks accented by sauces such as chipotle-wine with Portobello mushrooms and sautéed artichoke hearts and roasted red bell peppers. The restaurant will occupy 7,900 sq. ft. to the left of the Icon's main entrance at the intersection of 12th Avenue South and Division Street.
Along with Cantina Laredo, locally owned coffee shop Casablanca Coffee will occupy 1,300 sq. ft. to the right of the Icon's main entrance. The aptly named Casablanca Coffee opened its first location in White House, Tenn.
Both restaurants are scheduled to open next spring.
Market Street Enterprises, the developers of The Gulch, recently announced that Urban Flats Flatbread & Wine Co. would open a store in the Icon by the end of the year.
