When Lin-Manuel Miranda is looking for a little taste of home, he dines at @809restaurant in his home neighborhood of Washington Heights/Inwood, New York. “It's the area code from the Dominican Republic...we’re a community predominantly of Dominican immigrants who often share a very tight family bond,” says José “Joey” Moronta, owner of @809restaurant in Washington Heights/Inwood, #NYC. Joey’s father, Cirilo opened 809 Bar & Grill over a decade ago, and it has become a staple in the community with regulars coming in for lunch, dinner, or special events. Lin-Manuel Miranda, a local who grew up not too far from Joey himself, has celebrated numerous Thanksgivings with his family at 809 — a meal which includes both turkey and mashed potatoes and classic Latino and Dominican dishes. “I'm sure I'm not just speaking for myself,” Joey says, “but for Washington Heights and Inwood in general...what Lin-Manuel is doing just injects a tremendous amount of pride to everyone that lives here or has come from here.” American Express is proud to support Lin-Manuel in the powerful backing of his hometown community. #ShopSmall
