Cuba Cuba Cafe & Bar has been serving Cuban cuisine and cocktails in the Golden Triangle since 2001 and has launched a small group of Cuba Cuba Sandwicherias in the fast-casual sector over the past decade. But this week, founder Kristy Socarras Bigelow introduced a second version of the original eatery, taking aim at Castle Rock. The new outpost is a full-service restaurant with entrees like ropa vieja, lechón asado, picadillo and camarones al coco to accompany the rum bar, sandwiches, tostones and empanadas that regulars have known about for years. See the restaurant's website for hours and details.
