Rudy Hernandez has big plans for the Teller House. He’s been managing the bed and breakfast for some three years and now he’s opened a restaurant on the ground floor. The restaurant features Mexican food and American style items such as steaks, chicken, and pasta dishes.
In winter months it will be operated for breakfast and dinner, Hernandez said. And during train season, it will offer deli-style lunches as well.
The restaurant also features a full bar. Hernandez said he grew up in the restaurant business. “Since I was a little boy my parents have always had a restaurant,” he said. His mother still operates a Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas.
“This is my life,” Hernandez said. Hernandez spent months remodeling the space, which formerly housed the San Juan Grill. He opened up the back space by taking out a wall, providing a much more open feel. Hernandez said the Teller House restaurant also offers room service to the hotel guests. “I always thought this should be brought back to the Teller House. We’re unifying the whole place,” Hernandez said. “No more bed and breakfast. We are now full service.” - Silverton Standard 1/27/2011
