For example, you could be a falconer.
Or Jay Gatsby could be Mexican.
And he might invite you over to his place for a few drinks.
And it’d look just like this...
Gaze upon the massive magnificence of Cantina La Veinte, a palatial Mexican restaurant/drinkery/market situated on prime waterfront, opening Monday in Brickell.
Clearly, there’s a lot going on here. And the reasons to frequent this place are numerous. But here are a few big ones.
1. It’s after work and you’re thirsty.
It’s hot. Obviously. That’s what 160 tequilas and 80 mezcals are for. Now, you can opt to sit on the patio overlooking the water, but again: hot. So go for the floor-to-ceiling black onyx bar inside and order a Cantina Margarita with chipotle-infused tequila. Make that two.
2. Your dinner date’s craving fried ribeye.
First: keeper. Second: follow the marble floor to a table surrounded by Mexican folk art. Order the fried ribeye with guacamole. Gaze longingly at... the empty plate.
3. You’re on the road and need a quick hit.
There’s a market here with made-to-order sandwiches, wine and fresh Mexican horchatas.
Parallel universe Gatsby would approve.
