La Fortaleza Spanish Restaurant In Melrose

Does anyone remember the old La Fortaleza Spanish Restaurant which occupied the northeast corner of 3rd Avenue and East 156th Street?
Please do share your memories!



I remember Pueblo...I was just a kid but I remember they sold baked goods and the store was pink. I also remember there was a terrible car crash and I think that is why they closed down. I don't remember Fortaleza that much, not too sure if it was before or after Pueblo but that space was all about the furniture stores for so many years. Ahhh the memories!
