Latin Quarters (Raleigh) - Update

Since I seem to be on a roll this week, I thought I'd mention the change in ownership at LQ. Even before the N&O's review appeared last week, the restaurant had already been sold to the owner of Tropical Pickin' Chicken in Wake Forest. As far as I can tell, the new owner will continue to operate both restaurants with different names but is making no secret of his ownership of both.

The "new" restaurant reflects more of a Caribbean slant, as opposed to its previous South American bent, as the owner is Puerto Rican. I used to visit the Wake Forest location regularly when it was under its original ownership. The first owner was Cuban as was the restaurant. I never ate there under the current owner so I can't offer an opinion about his food. The old LQ's website is still live and shows the former menu. Their Facebook page is current and has more up-to-date info.

I haven't been yet, but I'm thinking of starting slowly with lunch. The sandwich menu looks interesting. If anyone get there before I get a chance, please update.
