In 1964, Gustavo and Irene Montes opened El Arco Iris Restaurant with the hopes of bringing a taste of their native Queretaro, Mexico to the people of Los Angeles. With the help of their children and later, their grand- children, El Arco Iris has grown from eight tables to a full-service restaurant with catering and banquet room facilities. While the scenery may have changed over the years, Lela and Papa's recipes for their signature dishes — chile verde, mole poblano and carnitas — have not.
