Night Club Entrepreneur and Culinary Raconteur Jimmy Rodriguez played host to local media yesteday over at his newest creation, Don Coqui. Jimmy invited reporters to come by and check out the recently reopened hot spot. Befitting my status as New Rochelle’s rising media start, I had planned to attend but had to cancel at the last minute. They’ve invited me to come by another time so I will have my review later but in the meantime they were kind enough to send over some photos from the event.
Angie Martinez, radio personality from HOT 97, conducted an interesting “counter-side” chat with Jimmy where they discussed his background and his goals with this new venture (below).
The attendees had a great time experiencing the restaurant, tasting the food, and trying their hand at cooking the Don Coqui signature bacalao salad, after watching a demonstration from executive chef Stephanie and celebrity chef Elsie Ramos (below).
