Crazy Cuban has reopened its Home Park doors.
The once-popular sandwich shop had to close down in late-2016 after the neighboring convenience store caught fire.
It’s been a long journey for the Crazy Cuban.
Owner Aldo Ramirez was originally looking to reopen the restaurant at the end of 2017.
“Unfortunately, a fire in the space next door occurred on September 16, 2016, which caused our restaurant to close for the next 27 months,” according to the Crazy Cuban website.
“During this time Aldo ran a food cart outside the burned location to feed and maintain some of his loyal customer base.”
Crazy Cuban now occupies the entire free-standing building, at 290 14th Street NW.
With the additional space, the restaurant has gone full-service during dinner.
On the menu are appetizers like Empanadas and entrees including Arroz con Pollo and Picadillo (Cuban-style ground beef dish that is similar to hash.)
Guests can still get the shop’s award-winning sandwiches during lunch.
