Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. today celebrated the start of the 9th Annual “Savor The Bronx” Restaurant Week at Seis Vecinos, a family-operated restaurant in Longwood serving Central American Cuisine with an emphasis on Honduran gastronomy.

“Our borough’s culinary institutions are second to none. Not only do we have world famous epicurean destination on City Island and Arthur Avenue, but we have hidden gems like Seis Vecinos in neighborhoods across the borough,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. “I encourage foodies from all over the region to check out the flavors of The Bronx during our annual restaurant week event.”
