Reader Jonathan was at TonyRay’s Mexican Cantina at 731 De la Guerra Plaza last week and noticed that it is in a slow, quiet transition back to the family who ran Papagallo’s Peruvian restaurant. I called Jorge Ricci formerly of Papagallo’s and was given a few details. Starting in mid-January TonyRay’s closed and is now open just for special events, weddings and parties. The venue is still called “TonyRay’s” and retains the same owner but it will be run by Jorge Ricci of Papagallo’s and will be offering Papagallo’s popular cuisine. The new venue is planning to expand at the end of the year so that it will have a State St. entrance. To make reservations call Jorge Ricci at (805) 637-1431.
