Coming Soon: Frita Shop

Oye!  Got some pretty kickass news for ya today!  Local Miamians may recall Chef Alberto Cabrera and the badass Cobaya dinner he took us underground for back in November of last year.  Check out his resume.  The dude gets around and has worked with some great chefs throughout his career.  We chatted via text today and he let me know that he was leaving The Local, his gastropub concept in Coral Gables, and launching a new endeavor this summer...  Frita Shop!

Oh hell yeah!
I can imagine the Burger Beast fainting from the thought of getting his hands on frita at a brand new certified frita joint.  Alberto revealed minimal details.  What I can tell you is that he will be offering up these classic Cuban burgers along with liquid nitrogen shakes and that there will be originally be locations in Kendall and Westchester.  I imagine there will be other bites of awesomeness on the menu too.

Currently the website,, is in the final development stages and soon there will be Facebook and Twitter pages to follow to get the latest updates on Cabrera's new joint.  Alberto also let me know that inquiring minds and bellies can get a taste of Frita Shop next month inside the Grand Tasting tent at South Beach Wine and Food Festival.  Locations hope to open sometime in July.  Stay tuned for more info.
