The owner of Mama Rita's Authentic Mexican Cantina in the Dos Vientos Ranch section of Newbury Park announced today that Mama Rita's is closing its doors next year but will remain open through 2010. This is sad news all around for Laura, the local community and Paraiso Town Center but on a positive note, Laura indicates she will continue her catering business out of another local location TBD.
Mama Rita's has been at Paraiso since its opening 2 1/2 years ago. Prior to that, Mama Rita's had a primarily catering location in Westlake Village near Costco. My wife has been a big fan of Mama Rita's chile rellenos since those earlier days and we fought over them as soon as they reached our kitchen counter.
So please spread the word and tell everyone to stop by Mama Rita's these next 35 days that they remain open! Laura is planning a huge party sometime next month.
