Board OKs outdoor seats for eatery
A Miami-based taco restaurant likely will be able to have outdoor seats when it opens this fall in Palm Beach.
Coyo Taco received a recommendation from the Landmarks Preservation Commission on Wednesday to allow 26 outdoor seats at its spot in the southwest corner of the historic Royal Poinciana Plaza. The Town Council has to give final approval.
The taqueria plans to put three, six-person tables with umbrellas on the patio near the fountain, as well as four, two-person tables on the covered terrazzo walkway near the restaurant.
“Now that Sant Ambroeus’ outdoor dining has reinvigorated the east courtyard patio, Up Markets desires to bring to life the west courtyard patio,” the application reads.
The inside of the restaurant, which was approved in March, will have 54 seats.
Last month, the council allowed Sant Ambroeus to move 20 seats to the patio beside the plaza’s east fountain. Council members approved an ordinance in February allowing plaza tenants to request outdoor seats.
