It's called Green Plantains located at 79-09 Roosevelt. Food is a mix of Caribbean, Latin & Asian. I had two lunches which are $5.50 for an entree with one side. I had Boneless Bourbon Ribs with fried sweet plantains and the second lunch was Ropa Vieja with rice and beans. Both were good. The non lunch dishes are very reasonable. Ex: Mojito Chicken Special Combo with mini monfongo, chicken patty, rice & beans and house salad with balsamic vinaigrette for $8.95. Each week day is a special. Today's Special is Mojito Chicken & Shrimps with vegetables for $9.95. For someone on a tight budget they have a 1/4 Mojito Chicken with house salad and one side for $4.50. The place was not crowded on both visits but they just opened and there's no shortage of reasonable priced places in the area. Very nice service & atmosphere.

    I found them to be rather mediocre. However, I agree with the prices being very reasonable.
