Cubana Café at 272 Smith Street here in Carroll Gardens is just undergoing a renovation and will re-open soon. But this small favorite Latin eatery has been closed for a while now newspapers have been obscuring the interior.
There is no mention of a closing on the restaurant's web site or on Yelp, but reader Nik Z. reports that Cubana has been taken off of Seamless and that the phone number is disconnected. Not a good sign by any means.
Cubana Café has been a go-to place for many years in the neighborhood. Prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is casual, unpretentious, the food wonderful and the mojitos even better.
If the café has closed for good, I will most definitely miss their mojitos, their chick pea salad, and most importantly, their grilled shrimp sandwich.
Does anyone have more info on this place?
Thanks to Ben U. for first alerting us to the closing.
