Fire celebrated its fifth anniversary. It was held at the Enchanted
Garden Inn property where the Coqui Fire Cafe is located.

Fire participated in the third annual "Taste of the Islands"
culinary event held at Martineau Bay Resort and Spa. Culinary artists from the most notable
restaurants in the Caribbean joined together to celebrate the
art of fine dining while benefiting the Vieques
Conservation and Historical Trust and the Reach for Success
Youth Program. Coqui Fire Cafe served a spicy wild
mushroom tamale and mango marinated pork carnitas to some rave
exciting times for Coqui Fire. On March 5th, the Coqui Fire Cafe
opened serving breakfast Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and
dinner on Tuesday nights. Support has been fantastic. We've even received
a rave review in the Washington Post. Check out our menus. We look
forward to seeing you!
