Our Story

As one of New Mexico’s most well-loved restaurants, Garduño’s of Mexico wanted to share some its most popular dishes and introduce a few new savory plates to a thriving Albuquerque neighborhood. From this idea, Cantina Nueva was born with a simple concept in mind: serve up delicious food and drinks close to home.

With its chef-driven menu and creative approach, Cantina Nueva aims to change the way residents view eating out in the Northeast Heights of Albuquerque. We’re excited to prove that a fun, contemporary dining experience can be just a short drive from home or work!
