Araña Taqueria y Cantina features authentic Mexican cuisine inspired by the culinary traditions of the Yucatan—with a unique twist. Inspired by Executive Chef Richard Papier, a New Orleans-native trained in authentic Mexican cuisine, the restaurant’s menu features a variety of flavorful dishes using fresh ingredients including Queso Fundio, daily tamale specials, tacos, Tortas and Yucatan-inspired entrees. All pork, beef, chicken and duck used in Araña’s dishes are slow-braised and cooked in banana leaves— a popular Mexican cooking technique.

The restaurant’s cocktail menu includes traditional palomas and margaritas, made with fresh-squeezed lime juice, along with red and white sangrias and a variety of aguas frescas. Additional unique drinks to Mexico include drunken horchatas, Mexico’s Day of the Dead craft beer line, and Mezcal and tequila flights.

Enjoy Araña’s weekday happy hour from 3-7 pm featuring half-price tacos and drinks, Sunday brunch, tequila tasting and more! For more information, follow us on Facebook, twitter and Instagram!
