I'm not sure where you are getting your information but this is simply not at all true. I've heard all kinds of rumors and as always, it's best to get it from the source.
We we have not moved away. We are not "letting someone use the name". All previous reservations have been canceled and refunded and NOT held over to the new property. Of course people can rebook but we didn't find it fair to just tell them "your reservation is now at a different location". This gives guests the option to stay at the new location or not.
We were approached by someone to PURCHASE the business. All of our staff including the same chef are still involved with the addition of more. We are actively helping the new owners with a smooth transition and will continue to have an administrative role.
We are also negotiating the rent or possible purchase of land near by for parking. The new property is much larger with 9 suites, heated pool, a kitchen three times larger, full service salon & spa and extensive grounds.
We we will be officially opening October 15th and will make announcements in all of the usually local outlets.
To address the corkage fee. It is correct that we have a corkage of 250 pesos. We carry a select menu of boutique wines, mostly Mexican, and our Margin is 250 pesos more or less. Rather than doubling or tripling retail price (as is typical of restaurants), we would rather make the same margin on all wines and make the higher end wines much more affordable. Plus since we get our wines direct from the winery in most cases our prices end up being around retails price. We are a business. Our reason for investing and opening every day is to make money. We make 250 pesos on a bottle of wine toward our overhead (and yes I idealy profit), whether you buy it from us or bring it yourself.
