shame about El Deportivo. i worked not far from there and would sit at the counter quite often. that chopped garlic in oil could cure any hangover real quick! there's a place in the LES on Rivington and Essex that is similar. don't know the name, but it's on the southwest corner.
Sofrito on 57th east of First has upscale PuertoRican food; I have not been there is a few years so cannot comment, but we thought it was a decent neighborhood spot at the time. I think there is also a late night scene:

Not a good neighborhood for Puerto Rican food. Best options are to consider traveling or consider alternative cuisines.
