Those who are unafraid of a trip into Haverstraw, NY in search of fine dining on the river mourn the passing of Catch, a fine but under-appreciated seafood restaurant in the north Rockland County town. But fear not brave diners. A new restaurant with a taste of Puerto Rican cuisine is scheduled to open in Catch’s former space by June.
Named Don Coqui, the new restaurant is located at 16 Front Street adjacent to Emeline Park, and becomes the third occupant in the space. Don Coqui has two other locations, in White Plains and in Queens. Their menu is full of signature Latin selections including paella, churrasco skirt steak, and slow roasted Pernil (pork shoulder). We anticipate many festive nights on the deck savoring a Latin atmosphere, fine food and some reportedly wicked Sangria.
