Out with the old and in with the new. Bread + Butter, the Cuban gastropub owned by Albert Cabrera, has closed in order to make way for a new outpost of Cabrera's other restaurant concept, Little Bread Cuban Sandwich Co.
Little Bread has been a hit in Little Havana since opening last winter. The fast-casual eatery features a variety of Cuban-inspired sandwiches, including its unique spin on the Cuban sandwich. Cabrera tells Eater that the switch in concepts was, "nothing about Bread + Butter, but more about expanding on a concept we opened up." Cabrera says he was looking to simplify his restaurant operations and felt that the Little Bread, "concept has really good legs," and was a "good spot to put in Coral Gables."
The Coral Gables location of Little Bread hopes to debut in early August, serving breakfast and lunch on the weekdays and brunch on Sundays. It won't be open for dinner, but expect pop-up dinners and events down the road.
For this location Cabrera plans on expanding the menu a bit from the Little Havana location with options like salads, build-your-own bowls and a large selection of items from its in-house rotisserie. He also promises that Bread + Butter classics — like the bacon wrapped plantains and the medianoche croquettas — will also make an appearance on the Little Bread Coral Gables menu.
This isn't the only expansion for the Little Bread concept, which will also open up a location inside the American Airlines Arena come September on the 100 level right next door to the Bacardi suite.
Stay tuned for an official opening date and menu details.
