Amigos Cantina Opening New Location in Webster Groves, Not Delmar Loop

A trusted operative notified Gut Check that there are signs at 35 North Gore Avenue in Webster Groves announcing La Cantina, a new restaurant from Amigos Cantina (120 West Jefferson Avenue, Kirkwood; 314-821-0877).

Sound familiar?

In September, Amigos owner Robert Trevino announced that he would open La Cantina on the eastern half of the Delmar Loop. The new restaurant, he told George Mahe of St. Louis Magazine and Ligaya Figueras of Sauce -- us, too, we hoped, though our message wasn't returned -- would serve rotisserie-grilled and charbroiled meats as well as botanas, small plates of Mexican fare.

Trevino wasn't available when we called Amigos this afternoon, but an employee did confirm that a new restaurant is opening in Webster Groves, and that the Delmar Loop plans are no more.

What happened to the Loop project? And why Old Webster, which already claims one of the St. Louis area's not very numerous contemporary (or, you know, modern) Mexican restaurants? More from Trevino when we learn it.

I foresee a brawl breaking out in the parking lot between La Cantina and Millagro staff.  Horses and tridents will certainly be involved.

The food at Amigos is a joke when compared to Milagro, but will probably do well because people around here don't know the difference. #stopservingbadMexican
