In Search of Apartment for September 2016

Hello All!

My name is Kimberly Gill and I am looking to move down to New Haven (ideally Fair Haven neighborhood) this September. I am searching for a 1 or 2 bedroom first floor apartment - with backyard access.

Cositas Ricas (271 Grand Ave) was featured in a story The Daily Nutmeg about Smoothie Shops

I believe last year we went here for Dining Out Night. I remember a hot and sweet concoctions which I thoroughly enjoyed!



"Cositas Ricas
(271 Grand Ave, New Haven; 203-782-4757), the final stop on our smoothie safari, is located along the main artery of Fair Haven, on flavorful Grand Avenue. This convenience-store-turned-fruit-hut is home to Mangonadas and Chamoyadas ($5, $8), two summer delicacies born from a counterintuitive mixture of mango and hot spices.…
