Did you know about the $5 and $6 lunch specials at El Cofre? Lunch specials are available everyday, 11am-4pm. If you haven’t stopped into this popular treasure chest (‘cofre’ is the Spanish word for treasure chest) of Dominican cuisine, what are you waiting for?
We usually order the avocado salad w/grape tomatoes, romaine lettuce, red onions and El Cofre’s homemade special vinaigrette; or baked chicken, mixed veggies and mashed potatoes; or fresh fish with a side of tostones (sliced green plantains) or platanos maduroas (fried ripe plantains); or pollo guisado (stewed chicken); or a plate of rice and beans….so many choices! Most of the heaping plates of delicious cuisine at El Cofre can be shared by two!
El Cofre is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
El Cofre is located at 454 Myrtle Avenue between Waverly and Washington Avenues. They can be reached at 718.935.1153.
