After 31 years in operation, east end Tex-Mex restaurant Nuevo Leon has closed.
Owner Rachel Davila left a note on the door this weekend announcing the closure and thanking customers for their years of business. We called Davila and asked her about why she started the restaurant, the changes she’s seen in the rapidly gentrifying neighborhood, and what she plans for the future.
KUT News: Why are you closing your restaurant?
Rachel Davila: I am retiring and the only way I can retire is to close it and sell it.
