Eve Aronoff's new restaurant Frita Batido to occupy former Cafe du Jour space
Aronoff told The Daily her new restaurant will not offer Cuban dishes, but "will reflect her passion for different textures and flavors and her commitment to buying fresh produce from local sources."
Aronoff is the proprietor and chef at eve the restaurant on Kingsley Street between Fourth and Fifth avenues.
She said Cuban culture and ingredients will inspire the food at the new restaurant. Aronoff previously said Frita Batido’s menu will be centered on two things: fritas, a kind of Cuban burger, usually made from chorizo, on an egg bun topped with shoestring potatoes. And batidos, fresh tropical fruit shakes made with crushed ice, a drop of evaporated milk and sometimes rum.
