Salsa Legend Roberto Roena Makes Babalu Part of His NY Trip

Salsa music legend Roberto Roena was a special guest for dinner at Babalu Restaurant on Thursday April 18. Best known as a member of El Gran Combo and Fania All Stars, Roena was in New York ahead of a concert performance Friday night and he made a point of bringing his wife and friends out to the Bronx to sample some of Babalu’s famous pan-Latin cuisine from Celebrity Chef Alex Garcia. They dined on churrasco, an Argentine salad and Babalu’s famous mixed grill. Everyone had a great time and thought the food was delicious.
