Kristy Socarras Bigelow, who opened Cuba Cuba in the heart of the Golden Triangle in 2001, is a poster child for the American Dream. A Cuban-American from Miami whose family didn’t allow her to go to college – “Cuban moms are strict,” she explains – and who had little restaurant experience, she decided to create a Cuban-influenced eatery in two little conjoined Victorian houses. The colorful Cuba Cuba quickly became a seductive hot spot, a go-to place for strong mojitos, fried plaintain chips and big plates of roast pork, along with other dishes based on her family’s recipes. A decade later, Socarras Bigelow opened a fast-casual sandwich-shop spinoff in Boulder: Cuba Cuba Sandwicheria. A third spot, a new and improved Cuba Cuba Sandwicheria, opened in 2013 in Glendale’s CitySet development – and there are plans for more. “Every neighborhood needs Cuban cuisine,” says Socarras Bigelow. And so far, Denver diners clearly agree.
