Despite the economy here in Costa Rica, there are still new restaurants being built and opening for business in Playa Flamingo. Ana’s Bakery is a panadería and repostería located a half-block from Banco Nacional. Ana’s Bakery has been open for two months, and the Nicaraguan owners, Elba Altamirano and her husband, William Salmeron, offer pastries, breads, cookies and cakes. They will bake for special occasions. Their hours are Mon.–Sat., 6 a.m.-5 p.m., and Sunday, 7 a.m.-noon. For more information, call 8588-6957.
Another Flamingo establishment, Gastronomía-Pescadería, was opened three weeks ago by Italian owner, Demetrio Stecca. He offers a menu of fresh fish, cooked meals, specialty foods and hors d’oeuvres for takeout. Demetrio will provide catering for small groups and cooking in your home if you prefer. His hours of operation are Mon.–Sat., 10 a.m.-6 p.m. For more information, call 2654-6216.
The road to Surfside/Potrero was grated recently and everyone is grateful (the roads previously had been very bumpy to drive on). Thanks to the Surfside Association!
