Skinny’s Cantina

On the Hudson

As a Mexican restaurant with Latin and soulful overtones, Skinny’s Cantina on the Hudson will take over a former beer garden in West Harlem. Set against an urban and a river backdrop, Skinny’s Cantina offers a fresh take on a Mexican restaurant. There’s indoor and outdoor seating on two levels in this bi-level venue, and live music on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights.

We’re located at 701 West 133rd Street, with a view of the Manhattan skyline, and Skinny’s Cantina On The Hudson is the perfect place for celebrations and family gatherings.

Located under a vaulted ceiling, Skinny’s Cantina’s upstairs dining area offers a calmer dining setting, perfect for celebrations, family, and Mexican cuisine that’s hearty. All of our beef is USDA organic and grass-fed, from our Mexican Meatballs and Carne Tacos to our Tequila Marinated New York Strip.
