El Castillo de Jagua is Open For Business!
For some reason, people on Facebook are sharing a four year-old story about the temporary closure of the Grand Street location of El Castillo de Jagua. We spoke with a manager of the restaurant a short time ago, and both locations (Grand Street and Rivington Street) are very much open for business today. Back in the summer of 2012, El Castillo was closed for a few days by the health department. Today the restaurant enjoys an “A” rating from city inspectors. Please make sure your friends know all is well at these longtime, beloved Lower East Side Dominican diners!
