our STORY


Three Stones is a family owned and operated business. Everything including the graphic designs, signs, and remodeling was done by family!

Head chef Alejandra Bolles (February 23, 1938- September 22, 2011) was born in Ticul, Mexico. She was primarily raised by her Mayan Indian grandmother. In addition to teaching her the Mayan language, folk tales and traditions, her grandmother taught her how to cook on a simple "stove" of burning wood with three stones around it. As the oldest daughter of 10 siblings, it was her responsibility to cook all the meals and take care of the younger children. Her parents also ran a taco stand at the town railroad station and she and her older brother prepared all the food to be sold there. Later, she met a gringo named David Bolles and a couple years later married him and moved to New England. Besides cooking she was exceptionally talented in the Mayan traditions of embroidery and hammock weaving. She took classes at the University of New Hampshire, held a Bachelors degree of Fine Arts, and continued to broaden her artistic talents through the studies of ceramic and graphic arts. Much of the artwork in Three Stones was done by her.

Mucuy Bolles is co-owner of Three Stones. Her mother, Alejandra Bolles, taught her how to cook authentic Mayan food as a little girl. Mucuy studied dance at Walnut Hill School for the Arts and enjoyed a 26 year long career as a professional ballet, modern and Broadway dancer with companies such as Feld Ballet, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, Complexions Contemporary Dance, Elisa Monte Dance, Buglisi-Foreman Dance, Zvi Gotheiner and Dancers, The King and I, and Disney's The Lion King. She currently teaches ballet and modern locally and as a guest teacher. Her artwork in Three Stones features portrayals of Mayan gods, mythology and the Mayan calendar. 

Christian Makay is co-owner of Three Stones and the motivation for opening our restaurant. During his 21 year long career he worked as the head carpenter for the Bob Carr Theater in Orlando, FL, on renown Broadway shows such as Miss Saigon and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and as the head of props for Disney's national tour of The Lion King where Mucuy danced. They met and when she and her mother started feeding him their Mayan food he started thinking about opening a little Mexican/Mayan restaurant. Mucuy's mother was thrilled as this was her long time dream so he made some plans which have now come to fruition as Three Stones Restaurant.
