De Rodriguez Cuba Moves In With De Rodriguez Ocean
|Chef Doug Rodriguez|
The "new location will be offering complimentary parking and the De Rodriguez Cuba menu with my latest Ceviche selections," says De man himself.
We reported recently that Rodriguez had missed much of Ocean's debut months due to injuries, but that he was back on his feet and raring to go.
As a chef can't be in two places at one time, this can only be good news for those who prefer a more focused "godfather of Nuevo Latino" cuisine. On the other hand, it may not be the best news for Rodriguez, who is closing the Cuba operation after barely a year in operation. Is the expanding D-Rod empire in retreat? Are we witnessing the Jonathan Eismann Effect taking hold?
We're awaiting word from the chef as to why the move was made, and will update when we hear back.
