THROGS NECK - A Bronx couple are giving back to the community the best way they know how: with food.

Bronx residents Sam and Vanessa Beltron are opening Casa Restaurant and Lounge.

Located at 36-07 E. Tremont Ave., the restaurant will feature a menu consisting of tapas and Latin food.

The restaurant had a soft opening Thursday night but will have a grand opening at the end of the month.

Casa Resturant and Lounge will also be participating in the first annual Throgs Neck Restaurant week from Jan. 18 through Jan. 24.
