Fresh off backing the Panera Brands initial public offering, Danny Meyer is investing in the fast casual Mexican restaurant chain Tacombi.

On Dec. 9, the New York-based taqueria, which also owns the consumer packaged good brand Vista Hermosa, announced a $27.5 million first round of institutional funding. Enlightened Hospitality Investments, which Meyer co-founded, is the lead investor. Other investors include two Mexico-based companies—Rodina, a hospitality investment firm, and private equity fund Capital Mazapil—and Gary Hirshberg, co-founder of organic yogurt maker Stonyfield Farm.
