Park Slope’s Santa Fe Grill Reopens Under New Name, New Owners on December 1


While many residents were saddened to hear about the closing of Park Slope’s Santa Fe Grill after 34 years in business, they may have reason to perk up.

It turns out the restaurant is coming back, sort of: according to an email from Maria Garcia, a former bartender and waitress at Santa Fe, she and her father, Antonio Garcia — who was the manager of Santa Fe Grill for many years — purchased the business from former owner Joseph T. McFeely and are reopening the doors.

The new spot will be called Santa Fe Veracruzano, and current plans are to open December 1. Brunch is coming back, Garcia wrote, and they are “planning on keeping most of the menu the same, just giving the business our own signature touch.”

What will that new touch be? Garcia says they will add items such as crispy flautas, homemade traditional tamales de picadillo, tamales de mole, and aguas frescas like agua de horchata and agua de Jamaica.
