It is now exactly 9 hours after our first anniversary. Our restaurant Havana Road Cuban Café opened September 30th 2011.
To be an entrepreneur you have to have passion, drive and an I can do attitude when things don’t always go your way. I cannot explain to you what it feels like to open a restaurant. The dreams, the butterflies in your stomach, the long hours and the great many new friends that you make!
I want to thank all my diners, my guests for making this dream possible for me. To my staff who give me 100 % when they are there-both front of the house and back of the house, to my Mother who shares the oldest recipes with me and makes sure that your lunch or dinner is perfect, to my daughter Ines, for her desserts, to my sister Maria for helping me out when I needed her. Finally to Alan, Laura, and Michael, who are there every day working towards success.
Havana Road is part of all of us who work there. To my diners, it is my home that I open to you to share a meal with your friends. Thank you for supporting me, for helping our restaurant grow, for helping us stay. I love each and every one of you!
Cuban hugs always,
