MOORESVILLE – After operating Mexican restaurants for years in Charlotte, Cantina 1511 is trying something new at its recently opened Mooresville location that it hopes to replicate elsewhere.

The new restaurant, at 120 Marketplace Ave., off Williamson Road near Harris Teeter, is smaller overall than its two Charlotte locations but still features a full bar and patio.

The smaller footprint “offers a cozier setting,” said Dick Campbell, president and CEO of Quantum Development, which owns Cantina 1511. “It’s the first time Cantina has ventured north of the city and introduced its smaller footprint concept.”

Campbell said he’s scouting for similar space options in communities surrounding Charlotte as Cantina looks to expand further.

Hours for the Mooresville location are 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
