Supper With Santana

Carlos Santana plans to open Mexican restaurants called Maria Maria, after his hit of the same name, in three Northern California cities.

Santana and his wife, Deborah, announced a partnership with Walnut Creek-based Dudum Sports & Entertainment, which has developed other celebrity-themed eateries.

The first Maria Maria is slated to open in Walnut Creek in April, followed by Mill Valley and Santa Rosa locations.
