Popular Puerto Rican Restaurant, Don Coqui, To Open In The Bronx On City Island & Not Everyone Is Happy


The popular chain of Puerto Rican cuisine is finally coming to the Bronx and opening on City Island.

Many locals on the News12 the Bronx Facebook page were excited about having Don Coqui closer to home while others predicted mayhem and doom for City Island.

Some of the comments are pretty downright racist and clearly individuals seem upset that a Latino restaurant will be opening on City Island.



Don Coqui isn’t the first nor will be the last Latino restaurant on the Island. Remember Tito Puente’s restaurant?

Have you been to Don Coqui? Are you glad that they’re opening a location in the Bronx? How do you feel about it being located on City Island?
