Our story is that we are a San Juan Puerto Rico based restaurant group, locally owned and operated by husband and wife team Emilio Figueroa and Gigi Zafero. Back in 1996 we knew that we wanted to open a place which reflected the warm and sexy Latino-Caribbean feeling of Puerto Rico. It was called Nuevo Latino, evolving from a combination of Spanish heritage, classic Latino cuisine and Puerto Rican pop culture. Since that time, our company has evolved to include more than seven restaurants, and a Catering and Private Events division.
What do all of our restaurant concepts have in common? Warm personalized service, exciting food and drinks, and vibrant settings that reflect true Caribbean style and Puerto Rican hospitality. We like to call it “Espiritu Boricua”. We are most proud of our hard working group of creative Puerto Ricans that bring their best to your tables every single day. We are all passionate about food and service, and we love what we do! We hope to have the opportunity to serve you very soon, we want to be part of your story….
*Our restaurants have been fortunate enough to have been featured in many international publications such as The New York Times, Conde Nast Traveller, Bon Appetit, Gourmet, Food Arts, Travel and Leisure, Caribbean Travel and Life as well as broadcast on Food Network, Cooking Channel, and E! Entertainment Television.
