Cantina Las Amigos Opens in Place of Danzón Cubano in Grand Rapids

Danzón Cubano first opened at 1 Carlton Ave. SE in Grand Rapids' Uptown neighborhood in 2018. The restaurant served Cuban dishes with a blend of Native American, Spanish, African, and Caribbean influences.

At some point there was a change in ownership, and now, even more changes!

A new, authentic Mexican restaurant, Cantina Los Amigos, is now open at 1 Carlton Ave. SE.

The owners shared in a post to Facebook,

We reorganized, renamed, and rebranded to highlight our Mexican heritage...Our family is excited to share handmade tortillas, mouthwatering salsas, and our famous creamy artisanal Mole with those in our community.

Cantina Los Amigos offers indoor dining, and patio for outdoor seating, plus live music on the weekends. They also say they'll be holding upcoming cooking classes. Follow Cantina Las Amigos on Facebook for updates.
