It looks like Bachue is no more. New letters on the facade say Raices, which means roots (if I read it correctly). It is advertising itself as a party place.

It appears it's a rebranding, but same ownership, same management. I could be wrong though.

Looking at it and considering the quick turnaround I was thinking a rebrand, but isn’t it going from Columbian restaurant/bar to Colombian restaurant/bar?
It also seemed like Bachue way was doing well. Walking past at nights it looked like it had a nice, lively crowd. For a hot minute they were trying to do a brunch but they had very few vegetarian items and the menu.   Maybe they will try that again.

If Raices is similar to the one in San Juan, it's awesome. JH could use some mofongo!

The Raices is Jackson Heights specializes in Colombian food, so we probably won’t see mofongo on their menu. I think the closest we get to it may be La Gloria on Northern,  Mamajuana’s Café in Woodside, or Don Coquí in Astoria. There may be other restaurants serving it in Corona.  I love mofongo, but it’s a difficult dish to get just right. I’ve ordered it at La Casa del Mofongo in Washington Heights, but it’s been hit or miss.

It was at Chimi Pizza. It was fresh - which is basically the difference-maker for me. SOoooooooo many times, too many times is the mofongo dried out - I never get it anywhere.
