Cuba - Chestnut Hill

Looks like they are getting ready to open. Passed by last night and Cuban music was playing. There was a sign in the window saying waiters needed. Anyone know the opening date?

  1. Do you know if it is a BYO or if they have a bar?

      I don't know. Remember reading some time back that this was up in the air. I did not see an application for a liquor license in the window.

    2. I saw somewhere they are supposed to open on the 28th.

      1. Has anyone heard anything about an opening date for this restaurant?

          Yes, it opened a few days ago. I haven't been there yet, but it looks good.

            Really? When I called yesterday, there was a message asking that you leave your phone number and saying that they would call back with the opening date.

        2. They are open and very good! I had the Ropa Vieja, Frijole Negros/Arroz and Tostones. As good as any Cuban food my Cuban friends in NYC make....please keep in mind that Cuban food is not heavily spiced, its main spices being garlic, oregano, cilantro. This food is 'correctly' Cuban. Miguel, the maitre'd and owner, is a wonderful host as well.

              It's byob. Went last night and loved it. I had a similar meal to gardens4me, except I had maduros instead of tostones. Everything was delicious and the place is beautiful. Also, there is a young woman playing keyboard and singing lovely Cuban standards. Will be back. So happy to have a good Cuban restaurant so close to home. Finally, a good restaurant in Chestnut Hill besides Citrus! Call for reservations. This was their first week and we only got in due to a cancellation. I wish them continued success.

          1. I'm so happy to hear this! I made reservations last night. I hope they do well.
