Cantina Pasadita, a gleaming new spot for Mexican steak, rum-spiked chocolate horchata and late-night shenanigans, now open in Albany Park.

This is the upscale cousin to La Pasadita, that chain of taquerias that have played savior to countless late-night revelers seeking refuge in the redemptive arms of a giant burrito.

But this is no little taco joint. There are dramatic ceilings, a stone fireplace and a rather pleasant sidewalk patio ready for midweek margarita-ing.
