Gonza Tacos y Tequila owners plan a new restaurant that goes well beyond tacos

The owners of Gonza Tacos y Tequila are opening an entirely different restaurant concept this fall.

“Macondo Latin Cuisine will open in the Sojourn Glenwood Place Apartments complex off of U.S. 70, just inside the Raleigh Beltline. Restaurant owners Gonza Salamanca and Carlos Rodriguez announced.”

“Taking its name from Nobel-winning Colombian writer Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s fictional town in the novel “One Hundred Years of Solitude,” Macondo evokes the home country of the restaurant’s owners. But it will serve a menu that’s broadly Latin American, Salamanca said in a phone interview.”

““Macondo is a very special name for Colombians,” Salamanca said. “It’s where magic happens and everything is possible. That’s what we we want to recreate.”

“The space in Sojourn is already built to accommodate a restaurant, Salamanca said, potentially cutting down on the build out time. Macondo will move into a 4,200-square-foot space, with indoor and outdoor dining areas and seating for more than 100, Salamanca said.”
