    Has anyone tried their suf-fix menu?

    Jebus – Prix-fixe, restaurateurs. I’m looking at you Caucus Room.

    • +1000!

    • You got a typo in “Jebus” there.

      Mais plus un quand meme.

    That is a weak Cuban menu…

    • Anononnah

      What would you have preferred – Fidel’s Place?

  • Nathaniel

    Especially since the closure of col brooks any restaurant in brookland is welcome. I am very excited about this place

  • Is pre-fix spanish for prix-fixe?

      There were also some pretty terrible typos on the website. Comida Cubano? Ollé? The second isn’t even a Spanish word. And those were just the ones in large type. But all in all, I’m willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. I miss all the Cuban restaurants back home in Miami. Nothing here has been able to capture those same flavors, let alone at the large portions and decent prices of even a mediocre Miami restaurant.

    I went on Friday night..the food is great. The decor is very inviting..all in all a great new place! Still have some kinks to work out in terms of timing the food, but I have faith they will get there! At any rate the food was good enough to come back for and I think this is a great addition to the neighborhood!

    Have not gone yet, but I’m sure it will just make me want Kuba Kuba in Richmond. Can’t somebody just open one of those in DC and make everybody happy?

    Wow– only 5 posts before someone brought up a “not as good Cuban in Miami” comment.
