Grand Opening Event April 4th
Gregoria’s Cuban Steakhouse, one of Durham’s newest restaurants featuring contemporary Cuban fare, invites the community to a grand opening party Friday, April 4 from 6 to 8 p.m. The restaurant, which had a soft opening in January, is welcoming community members for an after-work event with free food, festive music from Orquesta la Calve, a nine-piece salsa tribute band, and demos from professional salsa dancers. Additionally, guests can enjoy all-day $2 mojito, sangria and draft beer specials.
If would like to attend the April 4th Grand Opening Event please RSVP to Gregorias@boltpr.com to let them know you are coming.
As Fares Hanna, Gregoria’s Cuban Steakhouse owner explains, “Cuban cuisine is a fusion of Spanish, African and Caribbean influences, and our menu combines these for perfectly seasoned flavors. It’s a fine dining experience at affordable prices.” Gregoria’s authentic Cuban fare with modern flavor includes specialties like the cubano sandwich, lechón asado, ropa vieja and grilled options ranging from skirt steak with chimichurri to pan-seared salmon. For the grand opening event, a variety of appetizer and dinner menu items will be made into complimentary hors d’oeuvre portions so guests can taste a wide selection of the Cuban fare.
Bar Menu & Happy Hour Special
In addition to the grand opening celebration, Gregoria’s launched a new ongoing bar menu starting on Tuesday, March 25. It includes pulled pork and chimichuri, fried olives stuffed with queso fresco, and more. These new tapas portions will be available Tuesdays through Sundays in the bar, and available at a special happy hour rate of $3 or less per item from 5 to 6 p.m. each day.
Hanna previously owned and operated Gregoria’s Kitchen for more than two years, but it closed last year after it was damaged in a fire. He decided to rebuild in a larger location and expand the restaurant’s menu with even more Latin recipes as well as a variety of Cuban-inspired steaks. Hanna refurbished a special event space adding a contemporary Havana ambiance, gorgeous reclaimed-wood bar and a large lush patio that can seat up to 70 guests.
