Finka Table & Tap: CubanCube Fusion Food and Bar Lab Cocktails, Opening in April

Jon and Eileen Andrade, the brother-and-sister team behind the CubanCube food truck, are turning brick and mortar when Finka Table & Tap opens this April.

The restaurant, located at 14690 SW 26th St., is farther west than what most consider the fine-dining area of Miami. Eileen Andrade says they purposely chose that location: "We want the people of this area to be able to enjoy tasty food and cocktails without having to go to South Miami, Coral Gables, midtown, Wynwood, or Miami Beach."

And tasty food and cocktails they shall have.

The menu, which is still in the works, mixes the siblings' Cuban cuisine roots with influences from Korea and Peru, along with a cocktail menu created by Bar Lab's Gabriel Orta and Elad Zvi. The "tap" part of the concept will be represented with eight beers on draft, as well as bottled craft selections. The offerings will be a mix of local beers, along with some Cuban, Peruvian, and Asian styles, to pair with the food.

Finka's dining room is a rustic nod to a traditional finca.
Much like CubanCube modernized classic Cuban cuisine, Finka will take traditional ingredients from three countries and fuse them, creating modern interpretations of familiar dishes. Eileen, who will head the kitchen, says, "We aren't creating any boundaries. We want to be as creative as possible without compromising the essence of the traditional cuisines of said countries." With the siblings' background in food (their family owns Islas Canarias), the Cuban and Peruvian influences are logical, but what about the Korean "curveball" thrown into the culinary mix? "After much brainstorming, we finally came up with the Finka concept after having traveled to South Korea and falling in love with the cuisine and culture."

Looks like a high end sports bar and that is what is missing in this area.  Toooo many Cuban and Peruvian restaurants in the area.  No more please
