In a few months, a new Mexican concept will come to the Tobin Hill area near Pearl with a touch of purity, mischief and a great hospitality experience. Santa Diabla, inspired by Mexican cantinas, will move into the former spot of Cerveceria Chapultepec in the fall.
The concept is the first American crossover for award-winning restaurateurs Grupo Orraca. Rodrigo Orraca tells MySA that his father Manolo Orraca started out in the food industry, developing concepts in Mexico City in the 1980s and 1990s, before launching Grupo Orraca in Toluca in 2008. The restaurant group includes NorteSur, Hacienda San Martin , Las Verdes Matas and Fonda Yecapixtla throughout Mexico. Santa Diabla, the newest addition, is intended to be the cornerstone of a cross-Texas expansion led by Rodrigo.
