Onetime Garces right-hand man Tim Spinner and partner Brian Sirhal are headed back to Philly for the follow-up to their suburban mod-Mex Cantina Feliz, which opened earlier this year in Fort Washington. The two are settling on the former home of Illuminare, which closed this summer near 23rd and Fairmount, for their Mexican Day of the Dead-themed La Calaca Feliz, the Insider reports. They expect to be ready for an opening in January 2012.
