Neither dismissal, nor put on the street. Íñigo Onieva has voluntarily left Grupo Mabel, owner of the Totó and Tatel restaurants in Madrid, of which Rafa Nadal, Enrique Iglesias and Abel Matutes Jr., among others, are shareholders.
Tamara Falcó’s fiancé had been in public relations for the two establishments on Paseo de la Castellana for more than two years and he continued there when his engagement to Isabel Preysler’s daughter broke off, until he left his post a few days ago.
The directors of the Group proposed that he do other functions, in addition to the position he was holding, but according to what they told Informalia people close to Onieva, the economic offer did not exceed his current salary too much, to which was added that Íñigo considered that he had already reached his professional ceiling in that restaurant company. But, at the same time, Onieva had been considering creating his own business for a few months, a project that he already has well advanced.
Next January, when he will already be the husband of the Marquise de Griñón, Íñigo Onieva will open his own restaurant in Madrid and he will do it alone, without Tamara as chef or godmother of the establishment. Onieva has been very excited about the first company in which he will be independent. On the other hand, she points out that his departure from the Mabel Group has been friendly and she is very grateful for the people who have trusted him, have given him a job where he has learned a lot and has felt very appreciated. Those who have been his bosses have wished him good luck.
