Avenida Cantina is in the final stages of a renovation/rebrand over at 25 Avenue B.
Several tipsters yesterday shared photos of the newly painted marquee for Eastpoint.
In an email from March, management said that they would be changing names in the near future: "Still doing Tex-Mex, however slightly more elevated."
More elevated might appeal to the writers at The Infatuation, who once filed one of the more scathing reviews about Avenida Cantina ...
At a real Tex-Mex place, tortillas are soft, fluffy vehicles for taco nirvana. At Avenida Cantina, tortillas are dry, except for the spots where they’re wet, presumably because someone tried the flick-it-with-water-then-nuke-it trick. Or because they dropped them in the sink. At a real Tex-Mex place, the refried beans should taste like fat, salt, and glory. At Avenida Cantina, they look like a poop emoji and taste much less cute.
Avenida Cantina opened in January 2016 ... after several dubious concepts under different ownership at the address, including Matty's, Station B and Billy Hurricane's.
