Like to dance Salsa? You might want to pay a visit to Don Coqui in White Plains. Last month we produced three Virtual Tours of businesses that offer a unique experience with a flair of latin culture, Don Coqui at White Plains and New Rochelle and Casa Frela Gallery in Harlem.
The first two, eating establishments product of a long family gastronomic tradition started by Jimmy Rodriguez. Don Coqui at New Rochelle is the first of the two restaurants. White Plains is where you can enjoy dancing salsa. The Restaurant/Club gets full on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. People of all walks of life come together to enjoy the rhythms of salsa after a delicious Puerto Rican dinner.
The third business is Casa Frela Gallery, a hidden jewel in Harlem. Lawrence Rodriguez is director and founder of Casa Frela and organizer of HAWT, Harlem Art Walking Tour. You can peek some of the important pieces that Lawrence owns, in his office at the second floor of the gallery.
These three establishments stand out in their communities by offering immaculate interior decor with a latin flair - heredity of their owners.
