Last night at Tin Marin Restaurant (located at 3706 Riverdale Avenue) you were greeted by former Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz. Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. had dinner at Tin Marin at the very same time that Markowitz was Matire D' . As you will see in the photos below Markowitz greeted people, and the both he and Diaz Jr. spoke of the wonderful eating opportunities that can be found in the Bronx. Markowitz said 'The better the Bronx does, the better the city does'.
“We have dozens of great restaurants in every corner of the Bronx, and not just on Arthur Avenue or City Island,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. “From tapas in Riverdale to craft beer in the South Bronx, our borough offers a tremendous variety of great tastes of all ethnicities, from traditional fare to the unexpected. We are thrilled to have Marty Markowitz and NYC & Company helping us showcase our epicurean delights, and I look forward to an incredible evening of food and fun.”
NYC & Company is the city's official marketing, tourism, and partnership organization. Markowitz's appearance was part of NYC & Company's effort to encourage tourism to the Bronx and other boroughs.
