i've been meaning to give this place a try and now is the time. LA CANTINA is a tiny italian restaurant on 8th avenue and jane street where a water main broke yesterday and flooded around the block. its a mess and they are still working on it non-stop. LC is right in the middle of it.
luckily LC did not have too much damage but their business is interupted by all the reconstruction. i'm not sure they would even be open today. however, while i was in JANE STREET TAVERN this afternoon surveying the activity outside (ahem, harpoon ipa in hand) the LC owner freddy came in to talk with the JST owner about the flooding and mess with a grim look on his face.
so i thought if anyone wanted to it might be nice if people called to make some reservations for later in the week to cheer him up:
