Katrina (the new face of our restaurant)

Created by José Guadalupe Posada in the 1910s as the Calavera Garbancera (a form of political satire) and later renamed as Katrina by muralist Diego Rivera, the image of Katrina is rooted in thousands of years of Mexican tradition.

The celebration of the Day de los Muertos dates back 3,000 years to rituals honoring the deceased in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica. In this cyclical view of the universe, death is seen as an integral, ever-present part of life.

Katrina is the latest iteration of this tradition, where Mictecacihuatl, also known as the Lady of the Dead and the queen of Mictlan, the underworld of Mesoamerican cosmology, swallows the stars during the day to release them at night.

During the three days of the Dia de los Muertos celebration, we believed that the boundary between the spirit and the real world dissolves. The souls of the dead awaken and return to the living world to feast, drink, dance, and play music with their loved ones. In turn, the living treat the deceased as honored guests, offering heartfelt gifts.

That’s what we are: we are Traditional.
