Eater Sneak Peek: The Mission Cantina Opens Tomorrow

Continuing on his quest to own more bars in Hollywood than anyone else, here we have a sneak peek at the Mission Cantina, the new Mexican-themed spot from George Abou-Daoud. Located next to Delancey, the East Coast-inspired joint he opened in May, this one has its own feel (and door), with deep indigo blue walls, ornate dark wood bar and fixtures, stained glass lighting, funky Mexican paintings on the walls. And you can't miss the giant wrought-iron gates out front. It's almost like the Bowery (his first) in that it's a compact space and with a really good bar (decor, service, crowd) that aims to serve good food, too. Expect an extensive tequila list, special margaritas, many Mexican beers, sangrita, and things like barbacoa or carnitas tacos, three kinds of homemade mole, and the obligatory nachos and quesadilla on the menu. There's still talk of Abou-Daoud opening an Italian deli on this same corner, but he has a few more projects up his sleeve, too. The Mission Cantina opens Friday night, August 22.
