We now know more about the new Mexican restaurant that’s moving into the space recently vacated by Marco’s Cantina.
The owner is David Perez, and although this is his first restaurant in Wichita, it’s not his first restaurant in Kansas. He has 25 years of experience running restaurants, he said, and he previously owned Las Margaritas in Garden City, opening it in 2001 and running it for 11 years.
After that, he moved to Longmont, Colorado, where he operated another Mexican restaurant. But Perez recently felt pulled back to Kansas.
“I like Kansas,” he said. “Colorado is way too expensive.”
