New Latin Luncheonette Coppelia Expanding Hours

Here’s a story from Eater about the new Latin diner Coppelia located at 207 W 14th Street. They’re expecting to have a full bar soon and will be expanding their hours to 24/7…

“What’s the best thing on the menu? The huevos rancheros, because you can order them any time. We have a Cuban sandwich with shredded pork and ham, and it’s delicious. There’s also a similar sandwich called a pan con lechon and they put smoked pieces of pork rind in there, so when you bite into the sandwich, there’s some crunch and it’s delicious.”

Cuban-Influenced Diner Coppelia Opens on 14th Street

Reasonably priced Cuban comfort food in a diner setting hits 14th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues. Here’s the review from the New York Press…

“Upon hearing Julian Medina of Toloache and Yerba Buena fame was opening a Nuevo-Latin style diner in Chelsea, my original thought was, “Oh boy, another expensive comfort food place in Manhattan.” Luckily I was way off.”
