Cubanidad 1885 always intended to expand to four local locations once it debuted as a “Latin Comfort Food” establishment in Spring Valley in 2019. Now, two years later, the restaurant and its Cuban-inspired menu are finally headed to a second location in Henderson.
Paperwork has been filed for Cubanidad 1885 to move into a large, 2,940-square-foot corner space at the Eastern Commons retail center — triple the size of the original Fort Apache Road restaurant.
Cuban-born chef Dennis Martinez Miranda has been behind the casual menu since Cubanidad 1885 opened, featuring a Florida spin on Cuban sandwiches, fried plantains, croquettes, empanadas, entrées of pork lechón and shredded beef ropa vieja, and house-made flan for dessert.
An estimated opening date and future hours have yet to be announced.
