After about 18 months in operation, Casa Borinquen on East Cherry Street closed last week. The eatery specializing in Puerto Rican fare opened in March 2010
No word on why it closed. A sign posted in the window (below) explained that the last day was Dec. 16, thanked customers for their patronage, and noted that catering still will be available.
The East Cherry Street storefront has seen its share of tenants over the years. Taste of Portugal closed in the fall of 2009 and prior to that, the space was occupied by Eat To the Beat Cafe.
