Chef Silvana Salcido Esparza No Longer a Partner at Barrio Queen in Scottsdale

Chef Silvana Salcido Esparza of Barrio Cafe in Phoenix has a lot going on right now, including plans for a new restaurant in Gilbert and a fast-casual concept on the west side of town.

What she doesn't have to worry about anymore is Barrio Queen, the Scottsdale restaurant she opened in 2012.

"All I'm free to say is I'm gone," Esparza tells us. "I'm no longer involved in the restaurant."
