Facelift underway at Porto Rico Importing Co. on St. Mark's Place
As noted here, Porto Rico Importing Co. on St. Mark's Place near Second Avenue is temporarily closing starting today for what the owners, the Longo family, describe as a "much-needed facelift."
According to a sign on the front window for patrons: "We will be reshelfing, fixing the floor, moving the ice machine, and adding a better drip brewer."
