LGBTQ NEW YORK
Great spot for people watching!
In Connextions Magazine, Issue 6, we brought you a feature on Destiny USA, a new shopping and entertainment destination, unlike any other in America. Construction of Destiny USA, located in Upstate New York, is nearly complete, with two of the three floors open to the public. Within this 2.4 million square foot building, is a huge, 3-story skylit area, known as 'the canyon.' The canyon is now home to the gourmet mexican restaurant, Cantina Laredo, which opened in Aug 2012.
We visited Cantina Laredo on a Sunday afternoon, during their featured brunch, which offers a free Mimosa or Bloody Maria with any brunch meal. (I went for the Mimosa!)
Chimichanga de pollo Poblano
Stuffed with chicken, poblano pepper, cheese and topped with ranchera sauce
The rice is pleasantly flavored, the zucchini was cooked to perfection, and the chimichanga with melted cheese throughout, had a great balance of sauce, chicken, and spices.
Tacos de Pollo
Fajita chicken with avocado, pico de gallo, queso fresco and poblano drizzle $9.25
This fajita was a delightful explosion of flavor with every bite. I could instantly taste the flavor of each ingredient, without the spicy blend of an overpowering sauce. A fresh alternative!
With pecans and walnuts on a sizzling skillet with Mexican Brandy Butter and vanilla or cinnamon ice cream
Do NOT leave without trying this! Each bite melts in your mouth!
Destiny USA, the canyon
Memorably fresh guacamole, made right at your table; friendly & knowledgable service; and a pleasant & welcoming atmosphere, made for an excellent lunch before our matinee movie.
We highly recommend a visit to this modern mexican restaurant, located within Destiny USA in Upstate New York, but if you have no plans for travel soon and don't live in the area, click here to find a Cantina Laredo near you!
