No Mas Cantina
Posted by:  Carla Kaiser

No Mas Cantina is a very special Mexican-ish restaurant located in the heart of the artsy Castleberry Hill district, and it’s unlike any other restaurant I’ve ever been to. The owners also own a Mexican import business, so the menu includes the glassware, light fixtures, and the cotton shirts worn by the waitstaff. Next door is their amazing furniture showroom. Another thing I noticed is that the people who work there actually seem to enjoy their job. The menus don’t have salsa and greasy fingerprints all over them. The décor is beyond gorgeous, without being pretentious or matchy match. The patio is simply incredible, AND they are the only restaurant I’ve ever been to that properly serves iced tea. You know, with the extra-long handled spoon? Plus, their tables are set with royal blue cotton napkins that have their logo embroidered on them. I’m not kidding. These people know what they’re doing, and word is they’re setting up the empty lawn next door for a kick ass Cinco de Mayo party.

No Mas! Cantina
Posted by:  Deanna Jue

Cars and even flatware (sporks) have hybrid options—and apparently Mexican restaurants come in hybrid models too. Castleberry Hill’s No Mas! Cantina not only will serve you a taco with rice but will sell you the chair from right from under your bum. No Mas’ owners figured their ten years of successful importing of handcrafted Mexican furniture and accessories meant that their next logical step would be to diversify into Mexican food. As questionable as that logic seems—the food and drinks hold their own on the menu next to the $32 “Diego shirt” and $399 table set, which are also featured as options. An inventive menu serves up more than your standard burrito and refried—try the ‘Camarones Alambres’—shrimp skewers atop sweet plantains and mesa cake, or get the ‘Tacos de Pescado,’ which for the non-bilingual folk, translates into ‘really good tilapia tacos.’ The bar, also in on the hybrid thing, serves the ‘Pinarita,’ a margarita-pina colada, and is large enough to hold a group. Do a tequila shot, spin three times, and you’ll almost swear that you’ve been transported to the coast of Mexico . . . of course, also influenced by the restaurant’s authentic décor and flavorful cuisine.
