IMPORTANT UPDATE (February 11, 2008):CLICK HERE to read ALL our extensive Javier's Cantina coverage including information on their old location, their location that has just opened, their location that is about to open, and their location at a Mexican resort (includes a couple dozen photos).
Found out today that the expected opening of the new Javier's at the Crystal Cove Promenade will be around November 25 or 26, although an exact date has not been nailed down yet. Also found out that when it opens that their original location in Laguna Beach will close down . . . but maybe not right away.
