The Palm Beach Daily/The Shiny Sheet: “Highly Anticipated Coyo Taco to Open on Thursday in Palm Beach”

Palm Beach Daily/ The Shiny Sheet March 27, 2018

Coyo Taco has been the talk of the Royal Poinciana Plaza recently.

“When is Coyo opening?” has been the No. 1 question that the community has asked general manager Lori Berg recently. The restaurant was supposed to open in December, but it will finally throw open the doors to the public Thursday.

A fast-casual and hip taco joint on the island will be the first of its kind, and chef and co-owner Scott Linquist brings about three decades of experience serving up Mexican food from his native Southern California, plus New York and, most recently, Miami.

Coyo, which started a little more than three years ago, has Miami locations in Brickell and Wynwood, but this is the first foray north into Palm Beach County.

Though the demographic will be different on the island, Linquist said tacos are a food that kind of transcends a customer’s lifestyle or net worth.

Up Markets representatives approached Linquist about opening the newest restaurant in the plaza and he thought it was a great idea.
