Las Margs Takes the Place of Taita Peruvian at Colfax and Marion

This summer Taita Peruvian Restaurant quietly closed up in the spot next to Tooey's at Colfax and Marion, but the location didn't stay vacant for long. Zach Parker, co-owner of the new Las Margs, says he was ready to move on the place just eighteen days later. He owes the quick turnaround to his industry experience -- twenty years at the nearby Las Margaritas (now Argyll Whiskey Beer) -- as well as to help from his father-in-law and co-owner, Octavio Granados.
