Cantina Laredo closes its doors at Streets at SouthGlenn
After two and a half years, Cantina Laredo has folded its umbrellas at the Streets at SouthGlenn, and the location has been wiped off the website of the Texas-based chain, which has restaurants in a dozen states (as well as the United Arab Emirates). But there's still a Cantina Laredo at 1680 29th Street in Boulder.
The Cantina Laredo restaurants bill their cuisine as "modern Mexican" -- the description that Richard Sandoval tried to trademark for his restaurants, including Tamayo. But that war of the words has no part in this closing.
And although Tarbell's and The Oven were early casualties in this development, other eateries seem to be going strong; while the lineup is chain heavy, there are some independents -- and Snooze opened its fourth outpost here in 2010.
The current lineup at Streets at SouthGlenn, according to the Streets website:
Ivy at the Glenn
Saj Mediterrean Grill
Peet's Coffee & Tea
Maggie Moo's Ice Cream and Treatery
Corner Bakery Cafe
Hodson Bar and Grill
Smokin' Joes Barbecue
SkyboX Bar (inside Hollywood Theaters)
5 Star Burgers
O. Coffee Kiosk
Yo! Cheese Kiosk
Dairy Queen/Orange Julius
But there could soon be a new addition to that list: The Cantina Laredo space is available.
