Porch Light Latin Kitchen

When diners come to this quaint spot in Smyrna, head chef & owner Andre Gomez wants them to feel completely comfortable, like they are having lunch or dinner at his house. The same attention & detail put into making sure every table is happy & that all guests feel welcome is also incorporated into the food. Using many local products from farmers, growers & businesses as well as working in a scratch kitchen, each plate is prepped with extreme care & brings an authentic taste from Andre’s childhood in Puerto Rico.
