Newly revamped El Jardín Catina opens in Liberty Station

Rise & Shine Restaurant Group has officially opened El Jardín Cantina in Liberty Station. Situated in the space that previously housed the group’s shuttered El Jardin, the revamped concept now lends a laid-back atmosphere idyllic for sipping signature margaritas and indulging in piquant Mexican dishes.

Guests are welcomed into the massive 8,000-square-foot space under a bright canopy of colorful umbrellas and lush greenery, setting the mood for a picturesque dinner on the expansive outdoor patio space. The colors and feel of the patio continue inside thanks to a living plant wall, pops of bright blue from deep velvet booths, and a multi-tired, multi-colored light fixture.

On the culinary side, El Jardín Cantina offers dishes such as Lamb Barbacoa, Pollo En Mole, a variety of guacamole options, and a selection of specialty tacos sure to please any palate. For those looking to try a few different flavors, ‘flights’ are offered for the guacamole options, Mariscos, and even margaritas.
