1424 Park Rd, NW

We’ve expressed our love for Mi Cuba Cafe over and over again. For good reason. It is a gem. Hard for some to fathom but it is quite possible to love them AND a completely different restaurant coming to the neighborhood – Taco Bell Cantina (and of course, the many other nearby places where you can get authentic tacos.) Hard to digest for some. Having said that, lest we take the awesomeness we already have for granted, allow me to remind you about them so we can enjoy them for many years to come. Los Hermanos too of course (some say one of Juan Soto’s favorites.)

Speaking of love, this sounds (and looks) pretty great:

1424 Park Rd, NW

Late last week I mentioned that Mi Cuba Cafe was still coming to Columbia Heights in the former Paila Grill space on Park Road. Little did I know how soon it would be. On Saturday morning I passed by and was able to take some photos a few hours before they opened:

Their website is still under construction but I took some photos of their take out menu which you can see after the jump.

More photos after the jump. (more…)

“Dear PoPville,

I am a DC Police Officer and I am trying to find the nice couple that paid for our food earlier today [Thursday] at approximately 1600 hours, in the Mi Cuba Cafe restaurant at 1424 Park Rd. NW. The waitress said the couple that was sitting at the bar had paid for our food. The couple left without us knowing who they were and be able to thank them. Thank you.”

1413 Park Road, NW

A reader reports:

“I noticed new signage at 1413 Park Rd NW across from Mi Cuba Cafe/Senor Chicken in Columbia Heights [Ed. Note: Senor Chicken is soon to be a fast casual Ethiopian Restaurant and Coffeehouse, LeTena.] that says Vietnamese Chelsea Restaurant. It was formally an organization called “Change Inc” and has been vacant for awhile.”

Ed. Note: Pho 14 is also down the block now serving beer at 1436 Park Road, NW.
