QUE BUENO SUERTE!
Que Bueno Suerte! serves innovative Latin American cuisine on South Pearl St., in a space that creates a union between ancient Mayan and modern Mexican artwork and architecture. Chef Dana Rodriguez oversees the restaurant as consulting chef, along with Vicente “Vinny” Sosa, executive chef, and a talented culinary team. A menu of modern eclectic small plates and entrees is punctuated by an extensive tequila and mezcal list, as well as a variety of seasonal cocktails.

At the helm, Rod Tafoya has nearly 30 years of experience in the restaurant business, including more than 25 leading Mission Yogurt, Inc., now a leading concessionaire and franchisee at Denver International Airport. Mission purchased the building that Que Bueno Suerte! now calls home, which formerly housed Session Kitchen, late last year after learning the Westminster Promenade, home to its 11-year-old restaurant, Que Bueno!, would be demolished in May 2016.
“Qué buena suerte’ means ‘what good luck,’ or ‘what good fortune,’ in Spanish, and we felt the term couldn’t be more appropriate for our newest concept,” says Tafoya. “Everything begins and ends at the right time – the closing of another restaurant, due to new construction, presented the perfect opportunity to pursue this new adventure with Vinny, as well as Dana, both of whom I have been eager to work with for a very long time. A portion of the new restaurant’s name – Que Bueno – pays tribute to the past, and the rest celebrates the success we see for the future.”
