Zona de Cuba sits above the post office located on the corner of the Grand Concourse and East 149th Street.

The Cuban restaurant’s interior design is set to make guests feel like they’re in Cuba, from the furniture to décor to the plants.

One of the owners, Fernando Mateo, was a former owner of La Marina in Upper Manhattan.

 

The owners say that because the building is a federal landmark building, the opening process took much longer than expected, amounting to two and a half years of work.
