Cost is $15 per person.
Alegria is located at 115 North Pine Avenue in Long Beach; reservations can be made by calling (562) 436-3388.
Featuring a menu of Latin American entrees, Alegria is one of Long Beach’s best loved restaurants. The menu includes entrees representing all parts of Latin America including Mexican chicken mole, traditional Spanish paella Valenciana, Brazilian sweet rotisserie chicken and a Cuban pork dish. The 170-seat establishment draws an international crowd and offers live entertainment most evenings.
