One of the owners of Guy Fieri favorite Taqueria Molcajetes (recently featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives) is taking over the former La Cantina in Rincon Valley. The large space, which features a full bar, is undergoing a brief rehab and should open sometime in mid-February as Los Molcajetes Bar and Grill. It’s a huge leap forward from the modest strip-mall spot, and we’re hoping they’ll have some of the same great Mexican food. Watch for the opening at 6599 Montecito Blvd #130 in Santa Rosa.
