La Fonda Boricua closed down after being in business for 16 years but it seems now that the old El Barrio eatery has just reinvented itself. The famous Puerto Rican restaurant made the news when it shuttered over a year ago and rumors had it that a tapas bar would take over. From the looks of it now, it appears that everything has been polished up over at the space on 106th Street just east of Lexington Avenue but the restaurant is still called La Fonda. Classic striped awnings and more formal woodwork frames storefront and the interior has a warmer appearance to it. Has anyone stopped by yet? Apparently this was the best place to get Puerto Rican fare in town in its previous incarnation.
