The forthcoming Cuban-themed food stall at Krog Street Market (KSM) formerly known as Hemingway’s will debut this spring under the new name Kuba.
Chef and Owner Felicia ‘Phe’ Lacalle told What Now Atlanta she will also be swapping out the Hemingway’s name on her original Tampa flagship which has been situated in Armature Works since 2017.
The name is the only change, Lacalle said, but a reason for the swap was not disclosed.
Kuba Kitchen will take up 455 square feet in Suite U between Richard’s Southern Fried and Makimono in the dining hall, in the stall formerly occupied by French Market Florist, which relocated to Glenwood Park in January 2019.
The buildout is estimated to cost $150,000.
Kuba’s second location will stick to the original restaurant’s breakfast-through-dessert menu with starters including Cuban Salchipapa (yucca fries under a mound of shredded pork, chicharrones, melted cheese, crispy onions, aioli duo, and fresh cilantro).
Its main dishes will range from sandwiches like the traditional La Frita Cubana, and, of course, the Cuban Sandwich.
Desserts include Chef Phe’s Abuela’s Tres Leche cake and guava and cream cheese empanadas.
The Inman Park location will also feature a sangria bar with signature homemade blends.
