On October 2 Comida Cantina will launch a happy hour line-up of drink specials and small plates. Tuesday - Saturday from 3 - 6 p.m. Comida will offer $2 beers and $5 specialty cocktails like the agua de Jamaica maragarita. All under $4 antojitos (little bites) include Tender Belly hot dogs with queso fundido. Also next month will bring the start of Pink Plates, daily specials Tuesday - Saturday with items like chile rellenos and roasted chicken dinner for two.
This Longmont brick and mortar, which started out as a food-truck that still roams the streets, will open a location in Denver this spring where owner Rayme Rosello plans to do happy hour too. Next year, expect to find Comida as one of two anchor restaurants in the Source— an artisan food market planned in the River North neighborhood.
