Hemingway’s Modern Cuban Cuisine plates Cuban classics with a “soul food” spin in Tampa, Florida. Taking the kitchen reigns is Felicia (“Phe”) Lacalle, who says Cuban cooking is “in her blood” thanks to learning her skills in the most traditional way possible: from her mother. Since then, she’s been perfecting her signature spin on traditional Cuban cuisine as the former executive sous and regional pastry chef at Roy’s as well as executive chef at Samba Room and other notable restaurants. Located inside Heights Public Market (HPM) within the historic Armature Works in Downtown Tampa, Hemingway’s bold and vibrant colors can be found in both the decor and on the plate. Hemingway’s is changing the Cuban food landscape in Tampa. Come see for yourself!
