Street Food Pioneers to Serve Up at Constellations and the food is finca-lickin’ good.
The Baltic Triangle is set to get a taste of Cuba this summer when FINCA launches its first full restaurant in an outdoor space at Constellations. Opening on Friday 21 April, the covered al fresco restaurant will serve up FINCA’s signature dishes including cubanos, croquettas and sweet potato fries, as well as many new menu additions. We’re yet to find out to this day how they make those sweet potato fries so good, no matter how much we bribe them.
Launched in April last year, the Cuban eatery has already undertaken residencies at the Botanical Gin Garden and Slater Street’s The Merchant, as well as one off nights across the country, however, this will be its most ambitious set up to date. The newly built heated structure at Constellations on Greenland Street can seat up to 40 diners at any one time, with customers also able to spill out into the rest of the garden and into Constellation’s indoor warehouse space. A cubano in one hand and a drink in the other underneath the sun – that’s what dreams are made of folks.
FINCA will also be working closely with Constellations to plan a number of unique outdoor food events which will take place throughout the summer.
Oli Smith, chef and co-founder of FINCA, says:
“We can’t wait to move into our newly built restaurant at Constellations. The outdoor space looks brilliant and completely suits our style of cooking. We’re currently busy planning new menu additions and exciting events ready for our launch later this month!’
Nicholas Baskerville, Marketing Director at Constellations, says:
“The Constellations garden and events space have always been an evolving project. 2017 marks the start of our next adventure and we’re really excited FINCA are onboard for the journey. It’s a match made in heaven. The restaurant will be open 5 days a week, bringing another eatery to the Baltic Triangle, which can only be a good thing for those that live, work and visit the area.”
FINCA officially opens on Friday 21st April and will be serving at Constellations from Wednesday to Sunday, 12pm-late, throughout the summer.
