Opening its doors in 1990, there were three important ideas that Santiago's firmly believed had to be implemented to set them in a league of their own.

Second, was a mentality of "We only have one chance"; when a customer enters the restaurant, He or She is greeted with a friendly face, the food is fresh, good, and made with care. Third, was a humble approach of not naming the restaurant after oneself, but to name it after a Saint. After all, not all new businesses are successful, and we all need a little help.
