Beni’s Cubano Opens Peachtree Center Location

Beginning late-November, Downtown Atlanta business folks, residents and conventioneers alike can take a quick lunchtime jaunt to Cuba, thanks to the addition of Beni’s Cubano inside The Hub at Peachtree Center. This fast-casual restaurant from Southern Proper Hospitality, the team behind The Big Ketch Saltwater Grill, The Blind Pig Parlour Bar, Gypsy Kitchen, Tin Lizzy’s Cantina, Smokebelly BBQ, The Southern Gentleman, and Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails, promises a taste of Cuba.

Beni’s Cubano executive chef Cesar Velazquez’s menu features innovative takes on classic Cuban dishes, offering unique food court dining with a chef’s touch.

Menu highlights include the following:

• A classic Cuban sandwich with mojo-roasted pork, ham and Swiss cheese with pickles, mustard and garlic aioli

Vaca Frita Melt with grilled short rib, melted provolone, grilled onions and peppers and garlic aioli

Mojo Grilled Chicken served with choice of yellow or white rice, black beans and sweet plantains

House Salads with an option to add grilled chicken or top the fresh greens, shredded carrots and chopped tomatoes with a choice ofPuerco Asado or Vaca Frita

Yucca fries or mariquitas (crispy spiced plantain chips) with a choice of two dipping sauces such as garlic aioli, mojo or house-made hot sauce

The new Beni’s location follows this summer’s inaugural launch of the Cuban restaurant at The Avenue East Cobb in Marietta. “When wewere looking for a second location, we found ourselves drawn to downtown’s energy and diverse mix of people,” says Southern Proper Hospitality CEO Tory Bartlett. “With Tin Lizzy’s Cantina just upstairs at Peachtree Center, we’re already familiar with diners here and wanted to bring them a fresh Cuban option, one that will take them back to the tastes of Havana in its heyday.”
