November 3, 2013 -- The Cuatro Festival is considered one of the largest Puerto Rican cultural events in the Midwest, and it's right here in Chicago.
The cuatro is the national instrument of Puerto Rico and a symbol of the culture's holiday traditions, which include music and food. It's a program of the Puerto Rican Arts Alliance. Jose Allende, Executive Chef and Owner of Coco Restaurant, and Juan Quiñones, Head Chef, came into our ABC 7 Eyewitness News studio to tell us about the 15th Anniversary Cuatro Festival and to give us a taste of Puerto Rico.
