When it comes to lunch service, Cubanitas knows its clientele. Located in downtown Milwaukee’s central business district, the restaurant is a popular spot for business professionals running out for a quick mid-day bite.
“You order your food at the counter, you get a number, and then we bring out the food to you. You can order and leave within 30 minutes, so it’s quick pace for people who need to be in and out,” said manager Cristina Bianchini. She’s the daughter of owners Marc and Marta Bianchini, who opened the restaurant in 2003.
Some diners take their time, working on laptops or talking shop over plantain chips with guacamole and Cuban sandwiches – two of the menu’s top sellers.
Cubanitas has a second location at Drexel Town Square in Oak Creek.
