In 1986, Cristina Abreu first opened the doors to her Dominican bistro in Brooklyn, New York. For over 30 years, Puerto Viejo has been a staple in this Prospect Heights neighborhood, serving as a home away from home for many in the area.

From construction workers to medical professionals, to folks in need of a hearty, flavorful meal, people rely on Puerto Viejo for their homemade specials such as the chimi burger and pernil. Now, with her daughter Maritza by her side, their restaurant legacy continues, introducing anyone who steps through its doors to buena comida—dangerously delicious food.
