A few years back, Bodega on Central had just closed their doors as my wife Marcela and I had arrived. We were down the street at an antique shop who suggested we check out their Frita Cubana. It’s been stuck in my mind since then. My cousin Chunktronics and bud John are with us so […]

Coney Island Grill has been open since 1926.
