Brainchild of a former Wahaca head of innovation, Santo Remido Cantina Mexican restaurant and bar opened its doors at London Bridge earlier this week.

Edson Diaz-Fuente and his wife Natalie opened the site at 152 Tooley Street that had been home to Magdalen restaurant for over ten years.

It is the second time the couple have opened Santo Remido after its Shoreditch site was closed down in September 2016 afer five months of operation.

The 90-cover Cantina & Comedor is set over two floors and has been designed by the Mexican-born duo.

The ground floor Cantina, a traditional Mexican bar, will focus on Tequila and Mezcal cocktails alongside a range of tacos and snacks, including what Santo Remedio’s says is one of its signature dishes, guacamole with grasshoppers.

The upstairs Comedor, which does not open until October, is a ‘traditional’ Mexican dining room which will take reservations at both lunch and dinner.

The interiors reflect the Diaz-Fuente's heritage and include a number of design features hand-picked from their recent trips to Mexico City, Merida and Oaxaca.

Natalie Diaz-Fuente said: “After so much love and support from everyone over the past year and throughout our Kickstarter campaign, we are incredibly excited to have thrown open the doors to our new cantina and look forward to sharing the very best of Mexican food, drinks and hospitality with everyone who visits us.”
