A Feature Is Cooked Up On Anita’s Restaurants

........................................................................................................................................................................................

Albuquerque-native Anita Tellez, she of Anita’s restaurants food fame in the Washington, D.C., area, was profiled by The Washington Post on Sunday.

 

From the Post story:

 

“When Albuquerque native Anita Tellez arrived in the Washington area in 1969, she went looking for a taste of home. That meant tacos and fiery but flavorful red and green chilies.”

“In 1990, the company opened a flagship operation, a 10,000-square-foot restaurant in Vienna. Today, eight Anita’s restaurants are scattered across Northern Virginia, most housed in buildings vacated by defunct fast-food chains.

“The restaurants are also national, with locations in Santa Fe and Albuquerque called Little Anita’s — named after one of Mrs. Tellez’s granddaughters — and owned by their oldest son, Larry Gutierrez. Another son, Michael, owns an Anita’s in Orange County, Calif.”

The Post said Tellez, an Oakton resident, died in September.
