Chef Sergio Perez, a native of Havana, has more than 15 years experience creating traditional dishes of his homeland. He brought his mother's recipes with him when he immigrated to the United States more than two decades ago.
He opened Florida Café, on the Las Vegas Strip, more than a decade ago. A showcase for local Cuban artists, the eatery is a favorite among locals and is known as the best place to grab a Cuban sandwich for lunch in the downtown area.
Known for using only the freshest and natural ingredients, Sergio creates simple, yet elegant dishes that fill the room with a wonderful home y aroma. And the taste, well …. you will have to come visit to get the full flavor report.
The extensive menu is dressed in the traditional culinary garb of Cuba — ropa vieja, paella, tender sirloin steak, the famous Cuban sandwich, slow-roasted juicy pork, the traditional fried cow, shrimp enchilada and rice and chicken. All meals are accompanied by white rice and black beans, or colorados. It's something that has become a calling card for the restaurant that is quickly becoming known for good food and fun and a relaxed atmosphere.
