Ivan Marquez and Marco Diaz opened Diegos at 6024 N.E. Antioch Road, Suite B, Gladstone, in early December. But Marquez had a heart attack shortly before the restaurant opened. He also is the owner of two Overland Park restaurants and his doctor wanted him to slow down.
Then Diazs father passed away and he had to make several trips to Mexico.
Business at Diegos was starting to pick up but I didnt have anyone to run it, Marquez said. The three restaurants were so demanding and all of a sudden I was by myself.
Marquez is co-founder of Fridas Contemporary Mexican Cuisine in Overland Park, which is named after famed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Diego's was named after Kahlo' s husband and fellow artist Diego Rivera.
Marquez also owns Fridas Taqueria in Overland Park.
