Festiva now in hands of George Munoz


Restaurateurs Thomas Main and Peter George have sold a majority interest in Festiva, their East 16th Street upscale Mexican eatery, to George Munoz, who formerly owned Broad Ripple’s La Chinita Poblana.

George and Main had planned to eventually turn Festiva’s operations over to chef Rachel Hoover, but decided to sell the restaurant after Hoover’s departure earlier last yerar.

According to news reports, Munoz planned no immediate changes to the menu after taking the reins as majority managing partner on Jan. 1, but plans to eventually tweak the recipes.
