He opened the first restaurant in Falls Church in 2010, naming it after his oldest daughter. That restaurant features Latin American food, and includes karaoke nights and live bands.  Umanzor expects both the menu and the entertainment will be the same at the new location. “I think this is a good place for a restaurant,” says Umanzor.
