New locally owned restaurant coming to the District at Eastover

A new restaurant is headed to the District at Eastover, replacing Cantina Laredo which will close at the end of February.

The District at Eastover announced Cantina Laredo will close on February 25, to be replaced with a new, independent restaurant concept that will open later this year. The new restaurant will be locally owned and operated by MH Ventures of Jackson, the restaurant group behind Fine & Dandy.

“Despite Cantina Laredo’s success, we’ve come to understand that independent, local restaurant concepts are better for this market and more closely aligned with our vision for The District at Eastover,” said District Co-Developer, Breck Hines.

Under the direction of MH Venture’s Owner, Ray-Scott Miller and Culinary Director, Chef Jesse Houston, the new restaurant will offer the same level of creativity, culinary excellence and meticulous attention to service that locals have experienced at Fine & Dandy.

“We will release details on the restaurant shortly and in the meantime, can say that much of our focus will be on highlighting the star of our soon-to-be sister restaurant, which is the patio,” said Ray-Scott Miller. “The pinnacle of hospitality is being invited to eat at someone’s house where you cook and eat outside. So, much of our interior design resources will be put into making sure people want to sit on the patio and then bring the outside into the dining room. We will know success when The District’s green space feels like an extension of the restaurant and Fine & Dandy feels like a neighbor’s dinner party.”
