Success C o nn o isseur SAVOR DEL SUR Eager to rewrite our city’s conception of Mexican cuisine, the latest weapon in seaside eatery Cantina La Veinte’s arsenal? An enticing new menu. TEX T BY RYAN JARRELL It’s unfortunate to note that, in the minds of the majority of the American public, Mexican cuisine is mostly synonymous with the fast food outlets that so recklessly impugn its image. Intent that we, of all cities, should educate ourselves on the wonders and whimsies of this multi-faceted culture’s most charming of foodways, Executive Chef Santiago Gomez of Cantina La Veinte recently returned to his homeland for a two-week tour of the tastes and tones that first inspired him to bring such singularly scrumptious dishes to our shores. Although tight- lipped about the specifics of the new offerings, rest assured that whatever novelties Chef Gomez and his team premiere, they’ll be suffused with the aesthetic excellence and delectable notes that have made this Brickell mainstay such a rousing success; CantinaLa20.com. 26
