Ben’zaa Cantina at The Village of Centennial Springs offers the northwest “a modern approach on traditional Oaxacan-style” dining. The restaurant from the Wild Thyme Restaurant Group, which operates Hamptons at Tivoli Village, replaced Leticia’s Mexican Cocina with a menu collated from “generations of authentic recipes.”

The restaurant on the corner of Farm Road and Norman Rockwell Lane sits near the casual Italian dishes of Streets of New York and the under-construction future site of Egg Works fifth local expansion.

The restaurant takes its name from the indigenous Zapotec tribe in Oaxaca, and means “cloud people.” Dishes include a molé prepared with 20 ingredients, elote callejero, ceviche de camarón, and street tacos served with ranchero beans, charred jalapeño, and grilled onion. Those tacos feature pollo, asada, lengua, pastor, longanisa, and pescado. Tortas, lamb adobo, carne asada, and a pescado frito with a whole fish round out the menu. .

Leticia’s Cocina & Cantina has since moved back to the region and is now open daily at the Santa Fe Station Hotel & Casino.
