Great Food, Great Atmosphere, & Great Service
Salud! de Mesilla is the brainchild of Russell and his partner Christopher Schaljo. Owning a restaurant, however, was Russell’s dream. It was something he had always wanted to do. At the age of 18, he started in the restaurant industry with an internship at the old Eddie’s Bar and Grill. Upon graduation from NMSU, moved into the corporate world with Darden Restaurants. The Olive Garden is where he continued his passion for being of service and uncompromising excellence.
