WEPA! Cocina de Puerto Rico will have its grand opening April 26 with a portion of sales going to PRxPR, which is a no-overhead nonprofit supporting efforts for Puerto Rico hurricane recovery. 

Located in St. Petersburg’s Warehouse Arts District at 2149 Third Ave. South, WEPA! will host customers from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. for lunch and 5-9 p.m. for dinner service.

Dogs are welcome on the outdoor patio.

Although the restaurant doesn’t take reservations, you can call ahead for groups of 8 or larger.  

The authentic Puerto Rican cuisine concept serves up traditional island recipes, some of which go back three generations, reflecting owner Jean Totti's Spanish and French family background.

Street dishes and traditional menu items include masitas de cerdo, mofongo, pernil and chicharrones de pollo.
