CANTERA was born from a love for Mexican Cuisine and the Arts. We wish to communicate to our employees and our guests the passion for the abstract and modern by offering unique, home cooked meals from our family to yours.

CANTERA, which translates to “quarry stone” is very significant in Mexico. CANTERA is a specific material made of volcanic rock from various regions of the country. It dates back to pre-Hispanic culture and is used for the construction of houses and sculptures like our very own fireplace

The blown glass and crafts you see in CANTERA are 100% hand made by Mexican artisans that have been doing so for more than four generations. CANTERA represents the hard work of the Mexican culture.
