It has been a bittersweet start for Cantina 1910 located at 5025 N. Clark St. in Andersonville. As soon as they opened their fresh new space, critics unanimously sang their praise. However, patrons of the establishment were not quite as enthused at the concept and cuisine. Online Yelpers were very harsh towards the restaurant causing The Reader’s Mike Sula to go on a personal rampage against them and the entire Andersonville neighborhood.

Now, after much of that controversy has subsided, it was announced in a Reader article by Mike Sula (go figure) that executive chef Diana Dávila will be leaving Cantina 1910 citing “irreconcilable differences.” Joining her departure will also be chef de cuisine Aaron Covert and executive sous chef Alison Denton. According to the article, Dávila said she is “looking for a new gig.”

Cantina 1910 has also announced that pastry chef Andrew Pingul will take the wheel while a national search for a new head chef is conducted. The restaurant also added that its menu will not change at this time.
