In hopes of giving a breath of fresh air to the classic Cubano, Alberto Cabrera opened the doors to Little Bread Cuban Sandwich Co. last week. His inspiration for the sandwichery came from an unusual place— Cochon in New Orleans. After his visit to the popular Cajun restaurant, Cabrera realized his vision of having a "fresh approach to the classics" and the soon-to-be owner purchased a smoker to smoke his own meats for each sandwich. The menu displays his twist on the traditional, featuring Cubans made with pork rillette, truffled thousand island dressing slathered on a reuben, and a medianoche on a brioche bun.
Little Bread isn't only serving up sandwiches. Diners can also expect old-fashioned soda pops, shakes, and sides, in addition to house-made specialities like mustard caviar and meatloaf by the slice. Stay tuned for draft beer from Biscayne Brewing and a possible brunch menu in the near future. If you've already gotten to sample one of Cabrera's creations, let us know if they make the cut here. 541 SW 12th Ave.
