Bergen/Hudson County, NJ, 22 December 2010 – After months of anticipation, the highly awaited opening of Son Cubano at The Shops at Riverwalk was a smashing success this past week. The Duran-Gouchee family was able to bring the sweet sounds and flavors of the Caribbean to its latest restaurant venture in West New York.
Upon arrival at the opening, guests marveled at the fine décor of Son Cubano. The spacious restaurant had dramatic lighting with sparkling chandeliers and candlelit tables that added to the alluring atmosphere. The colorful paintings hanging on the walls were a representation of Cuban culture and tradition. While the group, El Gallito del Son, provided musical entertainment for the evening that kept the guests dancing, comfortable tables and booths invited people to enjoy the variety of drinks and food while soaking in the festive atmosphere.
The glamorous evening was a true celebration of Cuban culture and, above all, culinary delights. The focus of Son Cubano is to bring delectable Cuban dishes to its public and the opening delivered nothing but exquisite plates. Hors d’oeuvres were handed out during the evening and kept guests satisfied with their bold Latin flavors and seasonings. Guests spent the night devouring a plethora of drinks and dishes ranging from scrumptious empanadas de rabo encendido to lobster ceviche and croquetas de bacalao (cod croquettes). Drinks were another huge crowd-pleaser as the bar was abuzz all night with guests enjoying a long list of drinks, especially the classic Cuban cocktail, the mojito.
