|The restaurant shortly after opening|
Kind of a harsh way to show that somebody hasn't paid rent, but then again I wouldn't be happy if I were a landlord and that happened.
The owner is Gladys Nunez, who also seems to own RedRocks (at least somebody who lives at her same address owns it, according to the city's database.) In 2007, there was some kind of issue with Ms. Nunez at the location where Tegeste was located: a person who rented an upstairs space alleged she was a scammer. Not sure what came of that, I'm trying to find out more.
This is too bad, as I liked the place. The decor was so-so, but the food was good and inexpensive. I wonder if it was too inexpensive. "Mama" Tegeste was a very nice lady too, she came out to say hello to most people there. I hope she lands on her feet somewhere else.
