Puerto Rican Food: A Salute to Tropical Flavor
Wow summer guests with the lush island flavors of Puerto Rico.
For a summery party theme that’s definitely not overdone, celebrate with the flavors of America’s “51st state,” the commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

The island’s African and Spanish influences combine with local ingredients for dishes that blend fresh and fried, spicy and cool, and starchy and sweet. Our menu offers three appetizers, three drinks, and a dessert inspired by Puerto Rican flavors.
