Santana Joins the Celebrity Turned Restauranteur Crowd

Turns out that Grammy Award-winning Carlos Santana and his wife Deborah are die hard foodies too. So much that they've decided to take their passion for food to the public by opening a new chain of restaurants named Maria Maria. The restaurants, which are named after Santana's 2000 Grammy-winning song, are being developed by the Dudum Sports & Entertainment Corporation (which is responsible for several other celebrity restaurants) and "promises" to deliver authentic Mexican cuisine in an atmosphere inspired by Santana's music.

"The passion that we have for food and for creating a unique experience really resonated with Carlos and Deborah," said DSE executive Jeff Dudum. "I couldn’t be more excited about having the opportunity to work with them on restaurants that honor and celebrate Latin American culture, food and music."

The first location will open in Walnut Creek, CA in April, followed by one in Mill Valley in May and Santa Rosa in June (all of which are in the Bay Area). Now, I know that Santana lives in the area, but I wonder how much participation he'll have. Do you think he'll actually be there, or is it just something to put his name on...
