Untitled[edit]

A restaurant that stands for more than 80 years in the West Village is a landmark. Its history is united with Little Spain's history. The article citated is may be not the most important source, but explains, if you can read Spanish, why it was important to interview the owners of the restaurant El Faro. The Spanish immigrants bought El Faro to other Spanish immigrants in 1956. It is a mistake to delete the article.--Lolox76 (talk) 03:45, 6 February 2011 (UTC)


Follow the link http://www.lavozdegalicia.es/genteytelevision/2011/02/05/00031296925866719507292.htm Citation: "Mejor suerte corrió el restaurante El Faro, fundado en 1959 en el 823 de la calle Greenwich por el celanovés José Pérez y por su socio Andrés Lugrís. «Todavía somos socios, pero hoy son nuestros hijos, José A. Pérez y Mark Lugrís, quienes dirigen el negocio», explica José Pérez, cuyo testimonio es uno de los más destacados en el documental Little Spain. «Durante la ley seca -recuerda Pérez-, el restaurante era un lugar de bebida clandestina, como muchos en torno a los muelles. Después fue una bodega portuaria, especializada en lo español. La clientela de los años 60 y 70 era variada: en gran parte, de marineros gallegos que trabajaban en barcos americanos, en su mayoría como fogoneros; pero otros eran políticos españoles exiliados. Y luego había clientela americana y artistas de Hollywood, como Marlon Brando, que venía muy a menudo»." And please see the second picture of the article, citation: "UN RESTAURANTE FRECUENTADO POR MARLON BRANDO. Detrás de la barra de El Faro, en una imagen del año 1959, los socios fundadores José Pérez (sirviendo una copa) y Andrés Lugrís. El restaurante tenía una clientela eminentemente española, pero también fue frecuentado por celebridades como Marlon Brando y logró tres estrellas en la crítica gastronómica del «The New York Times»."
It says, among other things, that the restaurant had clients like Marlon Brando in the 50s, and that achieved 3 stars at the New York Times Review.
This NEW reference states context in the landmarks of Little Spain and gives years for the citation. Little Spain and its landmark will be recognized in the WP as an important part of the history of Manhattan. Thanks. --Lolox76 (talk) 08:01, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
La Voz de Galicia is the oldest and most important newspaper of Galicia, and the galicians were the best represented Spaniards in Manhattan. --Lolox76 (talk) 08:03, 6 February 2011 (UTC)
