They aren't planning on expanding Tahona, though. They're opening an entirely new restaurant.
That interior spot, which is nestled next to a hair salon and shares a kitchen with Tahona, will become a small, intimate restaurant with a focus on high-quality service and ingredients.
"It's not going to be a bar," says Mara. "Let me be clear on that. But think speakeasy in that the place will be kind of hidden. We want to make our diners feel special." Beyond that, the couple isn't ready to divulge a lot of details.
"We're still finessing the concept, and we're excited about it," Mara adds. "We're excited about the quality of ingredients we're bringing in."
The Soutieres are hoping to open the new spot by the end of April; we'll be posting updates here on Cafe Society.
