Sonora Mexican Grill, located at 1701 Grandview Ave., in Portsmouth, had a light opening on Wednesday, Aug. 6. Tonya Miranda, wife of owner Martin Miranda, said the opening has exceeded their expectations.
“This is just a light opening. We did not publicize it, because we wanted to give our employees the opportunity get acclimated to their new positions, and to get used to everything,” Miranda said.
She said they are surprised by Wednesday’s turnout to the restaurant.
“We have been really busy. We did not expect so many people to come out, because we didn’t advertise, but we are really excited about it,” she said.
Sonora Mexican Grill will offer a menu of organic, Mexican food. According to Miranda, the organic menu is forthcoming, and will be available soon. Sonora is currently providing a wide variety of Mexican food and desserts, including a kid’s menu.
The restaurant hours of operation are Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. For more information regarding Sonora Mexican Grill, call 740-353-1444.
