WEST HAVEN, Aug. 2, 2018 — Mayor Nancy R. Rossi, right, cuts the ribbon Sunday, July 29, with Cositas Ricas owner Pilar Garcia Leon to celebrate the ceremonial opening of the fruit and frozen beverage shop at 445 Campbell Ave.
Joined by friends and loved ones, Garcia is accompanied by her husband, Joan Cuapio, and her children, from left, Ashley Aguila Garcia, 14, Leslie Aguila Garcia, 9, and Francisco Aguila Garcia, 12.
Nestled in a plaza of small businesses across the street from the downtown Green, the new shop blends a creative concoction of fresh fruits and fruit salads with creamy milkshakes and smoothies.
Cositas Ricas also whips up authentic Latin American dishes, such as zesty quesadillas and tacos, along with savory sandwiches.
