After decades in the Chicago restaurant industry, Richard Vallejo and chef Yanni Sanchez teamed up to launch Mercado Cocina and Cantina in Glenview, and it has been an instant hit for the community. 

Vallejo, co-owner and operator of Mercado, said he and Sanchez were looking for a place in the North Shore to start their own modern Mexican restaurant and considered locations in Wilmette and Evanston before landing at 2300 Lehigh Ave.
