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."
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.
