The co-owners of Merengue Restaurant, Nivia and Hector Piña bring you Vejigantes a new culinary experience inspired by the Puerto Rican cuisine.
Wikipedia: A vejigante is a clown-like character in Puerto Rican festival celebrations (mainly seen during Carnival time). Traditional colors of the vejigantes were black, red, white, and yellow. Today, vejigante wear brightly colored, ornate masks of all colors and a costume with bat-like wings. The term vejigante derives from the word vejiga (bladder) and gigante (giant), due to custom of blowing up and painting cow bladders. The masks are often linked to many festivals that continue today, especially in Loíza and Ponce.
Vejigantes will become the go to restaurant for upscale Puerto Rican dining. It combines authentic Puerto Rican cuisine by Cordon Bleu trained Chef Randy Muñoz and traditional décor to indulge both your sense of taste and sight. A meal at Vegigantes is an experience unlike any other in Boston!
