Going South of the Border in the Heart of the Gold Coast

The Mexican fare features upscale comfort food. With an emphasis on superior service and guest satisfaction, Cantina 46 delights in the details. Great food, unpretentious service and attention to detail are our daily goals. We are recommitting to the fundamentals of a great restaurant. A few of these details are the fresh guacamole , as well as the signature margaritas, which have a new twist all their own: The bartender prepares most of the margarita (with one of the 30+pristine tequilas), then the servers finish off the Cantina Margarita table side with a one-ounce pour of pure agave tequila from a tequila bottle carried in holsters on belts. The result? A unique, smooth finish. Tequila lovers can rejoice knowing ‘it’s in there’.

The commitment to freshness is raised to the highest level, as there are no freezers or fryers, supporting the restaurant’s vision of soulful, honest food with integrity. With authentically refined and accessible Mexican goodness in the heart of the energetic Gold Coast, talk of Cantina 46 will certainly be buzzing por mucho tiempo.

Cantina 46 is located at 46 East Superior, Chicago, one block west of Michigan Avenue and 3 blocks south of Water Tower Place.
