Saw the sign on the storefront. East side of Mamaroneck Ave. between Maple & Quarropas. Right next to Season's Japanese Bistro.

Can't wait!

    They took over the old Seasons Japanese Bistro to make the space next door even bigger. I hope they make it. The last several places that were there before never made it past a year. They all were clubs or restaurant/clubs and were either closed because of a incident involving the police or were too big to survive in such a large space. I know they do well in New Rochelle and hopefully they can do the same in WP.

      That is too bad, in my view. Don Coqui has gone quite a bit downhill in New Rochelle. I find them kind of crazy with their over-the-top reservation policy and peculiar nickle and diming off customers. I swore them off last time I was there.

      Mandatory 20% tip on tables of four people or more? That is outrageous.

      As I said in a post when I was there last time: "Dining at Don Coqui is like going to eat in a totalitarian state where the whole enjoyment of eating there is pretty much choked by the ridiculous rules they force their customers to obey."
