Hot Eats: Diablitos Cantina

Complexity is a tricky thing to master. This is true whether the end product is a taco, a tequila, a new restaurant or an entire vertically integrated business model. In the case of Dr. Gurpreet Padda and Ami Grimes and their newest venture, Diablitos Cantina, it’s all of the above. Add too much complexity, and the duo risks overwhelming the average customer, who was perhaps lured into the devilishly tasty joint by the huge skull mural and the giant metal T-Rexes outside.

Gurpreet Padda & Ami Grimes Transform Midtown Iggy’s Into Diablitos Cantina (those little devils) By George Mahe September 5, 2011 7:50 AM Last time we checked in with Dr. Gurpreet Padda and Ami Grimes, owners and developers of Cafe Ventana,Sanctuaria, and Chuy Arzola’s, they were moving the latter from 3701 Lindell (at The Coronado) to the former Iggy’s location at 3761 Laclede in Midtown. We should check in more often… Chuy’s was scheduled to close last week–it’s still open–and the new “Chuy’s” is not Chuy’s at all. Quietly and–until the tarps were lifted to reveal the building facade–clandestinely, they have been putting the final touches

Diablitos Cantina received the RFT 2013 Best Of Saint Louis Award for Best Margarita! BEST OF ST. LOUIS 2013 FOOD & DRINK Best Margarita Diablitos Cantina There’s no shortage of decent margaritas around town, but how many of them use housemade tequila infusions?
