ABOUT

The Ownership team behind Crown Republic, Losanti, and Rosie’s Cocktails & Pies, is excited to introduce to you, La Cantina.

La Cantina, Crown Restaurant Group’s fourth concept featuring Modern Mexican Cuisine and flavors from the eight regions of Mexico. Our cocktail program focuses on Agave based cocktails with a concentration in Mezcal. We specialize in Nixtamalization, which is the process of taking corn from dry to hydrated, and grinding it into masa and making our own tortillas. What differentiates La Cantina from other south-of-the-border inspired restaurants in the city is its unique blend of authentic Mexican flavors and ingredients that are bold while still being approachable. There’s an attention to detail that takes each dish up a notch, as seen in the Shagbark heirloom corn used to make the tostadas that are served with the guacamole or in the pomegranate cured bacon in the wedge salad.

Since opening Crown Republic Gastropub in 2018, Anthony Sitek and his wife Haley have established a strong following and reputation for top-notch hospitality and inventive, made from scratch dishes. Recent ventures from the group include Losanti, a boutique steakhouse in Over-the- Rhine, and Rosie’s Cocktails and Pies.

“We are excited to bring some Spanish influence, to what has become ‘Crown’s Corner’.”
