What is the history of Castaneda?
In 1977, when the newly-opened Los Angeles Stadium was under construction in downtown Los Angeles, four young men met at the Santa Fe Bar to discuss the future of Mexican food in the city. They were all young professionals who had come from areas outside of Los Angeles.
Although they had a vision for a restaurant serving authentic Mexican cuisine, they did not have the resources to open such an establishment. However, one of them was a personal friend of Congressman Sam Guillen, who was also from New Mexico.
