Cinco de Mayo 2021: This is what 12 Staten Island restaurants have planned for Wednesday



STATEN ICELAND, NY – Happy Cinco de Mayo!

The day commemorates the victory of the Mexican army over the French Empire in the battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862 under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. For the past 150 years, Americans have taken advantage of this opportunity by partying and eating traditional Mexican dishes.

Staten Island restaurants throughout the district are offering specialty Cinco de Mayo specialties this year. Keep scrolling to see what they do and how you can support them.


The taco and tequila bar, which is expanding to the South Shore this year, has promotions on deck for their customers this week. Those interested in going out on vacation can take advantage of bucket specials of beer for $ 19.95; Buy-one-get-one sangria jugs and BOGO margarita jugs. (Come for the alcohol, stay for the tacos.)
