A Nest Of Latin Flavors
Local residents looking for a unique Latin dining experience can satisfy their cravings at El Nido, a Modern Mexican eatery in Coconut Point Shopping Center. Owned and operated by local restaurateurs Joe and Donna Sofia, El Nido serves an eclectic menu that blends the best of Latin American cuisine, classic Mexican fare, top-shelf tequila, and single-origin Latin American coffees.
“In the 16 years we’ve lived and have done business here, we always felt the one thing Coconut Point needed was a great Mexican restaurant,” said co-owner Donna Sofia. “We had a vision to offer not only amazing food and drinks, but a fun, interactive atmosphere that makes people want to come back again and again.”
As a complement to vibrant décor and the warm hospitality of its owners, El Nido serves a range of palates.
“‘Modern Mexican’ showcases the chef’s creativity and brings in a variety of flavors,” says co-owner Joe Sofia. “We’re a scratch kitchen; we use fresh, local ingredients, house-made sauces and recipes you won’t find anywhere else.” El Nido is open 7 days a week from 11 a.m. to close, serving lunch, dinner, an early bird menu, and weekend brunch. The 5,000-square-foot space includes an indoor/outdoor bar, seating for 220 guests, and a private room for special events of up to 50 guests.
