Among the 31 vendors going into the 25,000-square foot Chattahoochee Food Works food hall at the center of The Works will reportedly be Cubanos ATL.
With a large communal indoor and outdoor bar and expansive outdoor seating, the food hall designed celebrity chef Andrew Zimmern and partner Robert Montwaid is said to be opening this year. Build out at the food hall, which was supposed to open in the fall, continues.
In an announcement on Instagram, Cubanos ATL said big news was coming and tagged The Works Atlanta and the Chattahoochee Food Works.
Owner Ozzy Llanes hopes to open by summer, Eater Atlanta reports.
At the end of 2020, Llanes announced the opening of a second location in Cumming in early 2021.
Llanes designed and built the original Cubanos ATL, a Sandy Springs Cuban sandwich and coffee shop found in a custom-built commercialized tiny house, during the initial months of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Open in August 2020, Cubanos ATL offers Cuban coffee paired with Cuban sandwiches and breakfast items using locally and organically sourced ingredients.
The new spot in the Chattahoochee Food Works could just be the start for Llanes. Eater reports that Llanes hopes to open what will now be a brick-and-mortar restaurant in Cumming in early April and is eyeing property in downtown Roswell to build another tiny house restaurant.
