Puebla Mexican Food closes on 1st Avenue; Villacemita opens on Avenue A
As you know, Puebla Mexican Food is shutting down at 47 First Ave. between East Second Street and East Third Street. There were several closing dates… last we heard, owner Irma Marin would keep the 25-year-old quick-serve restaurant open through Monday.
Not sure what happened to those plans, but Puebla has officially closed… back on Wednesday, per one EVG reader. The storefront has mostly been cleaned out.
A rent hike is apparently to blame for this closure.
Meanwhile, at 50 Avenue A between East Third Street and East Fourth Street, Villacemita, serving Puebla Mexican cuisine, opens today at 4.

Here are their menus… breakfast (served until 2 p.m.)…
… and dinner…
They have not yet posted their beer-wine menu.
After today, Villacemita's hours will be 7 a.m. to midnight every day.
