I have been in the restaurant business for 38 years. I was the previous founder, creator and operating owner of Luna de Noche Tex-Mex Grill in the Dallas Metroplex. I built a successful business with award winning dishes, sat on many boards with causes I believed in. I achieved more than I ever could have imagined. The best part of it all was all the community involvement and the opportunity I had to make a difference in people’s lives. Life took me on an unexpected break for a couple of years and then I started a new concept called Lunada, great place, tough location. Restaurants can be life-consuming, I was at a crossroad about continuing on this path.
One day I receive a call asking if I could cater a party so I met with these two sweet sisters Patty and Victoria and along with their sisters Diane, Jeri, and Nedra they were planning their mother’s 94th birthday party. My restaurants were Tex Mex so thank God I have quite an extensive dish selection because the menu was anything but a Tex-Mex. I realized then I did not have to specialize only on Tex-Mex, I embraced that fact and that was the day I decided to open this catering business that has no boundaries on what I create.
The reason I started a restaurant so many years ago was that I enjoyed entertaining and people loved my cooking. This brings me back full circle to what I know how to do. After years of being in the business, I created many dishes in my kitchen, I would invite family and friends to a test tasting before I placed them on my menus. I now get to share these on a personal level one special occasion at a time!
