Rincon Latino, the Latin Corner, is closing its doors today.
This may be part of the coming squeeze on ACT eateries that’s been discussed elsewhere on RiotACT, or it may be coincidence; the notice posted by the proprietress simply says that although she’s had a great time doing this, it’s time to let this enterprise go and move on to other things.
I can’t say with hand on heart that I’ve been a Rincon Latino regular, but I’ve eaten there enough times that I’ll miss the filling, no-frills food and the chance to eat a kind of cuisine I haven’t seen elsewhere. Plus they were good-natured about my nabbing a table next to a power point and firing up the laptop, which not all places are.
When I got to chatting with them about the closure, they said that they’ve already sold the premises: it’ll be in renovations for a while and will apparently reopen as a Chinese/Vietnamese eatery in a few weeks.
