The Cuban restaurant Cubano’s opened in downtown Bethesda on Tuesday night.

Cubano’s, which also has a restaurant in Silver Spring, announced in March 2019 that it would replace Louisiana Kitchen & Bayou Bar at 4907 Cordell Ave. At the time, a restaurant spokesperson said they expected to open in Bethesda within one or two months.

A staff member at the restaurant said Wednesday morning that the restaurant opened at 5 p.m. for dinner service.

A sign on the door of the restaurant Monday morning read “Hold it there. We are opening soon.”

Cubano’s serves Cuban cuisine including Cuban sandwiches, empanadas with beef and chicken filling, and Mi Tierra, a sampling of various steak and poultry dishes served with sweet plantains.

Louisiana Kitchen closed after owners Carlos Arana and Jose Blanco said they were ready to move on.
