A popular Bridgeport restaurant that is well known for its Dominican/Puerto Rican menu is celebrating its reopening during Hispanic Heritage Month.
Ramirez Restaurant, located at 1234 East Main St., is where specialties like rice with roast pork, Mangu Completo and Ramirez Avocado Salad have made the business famous across the region.
The eatery is also getting ready to celebrate its 25th anniversary next year.
The owners are proud of the family tradition that's helped keep the business going for almost a quarter century, in spite of a fire and a flood that shut them down on two occasions. Most recently, the pandemic led to a five-month closure.
But now the restaurant is back in business and celebrating a diverse menu that draws as much upon Dominican tradition as it does in their pride in a wide range of Puerto Rican specialties.
"This is what we work for. This is what we wake up for, to serve this community," said Aneudy Ramirez. "We have a great clientele that holds us down in difficult times."
