Havana Sandwich Shop closed by fire

Posted By on Mon, Oct 6, 2008 at 12:35 PM

Here's some bad news for fans of the Havana Sandwich Shop on Buford Highway at North Druid Hills. Fire completely gutted the 32-year-old restaurant last night. The owner is blaming arson.

WSB-TV has the story and a slide show here.

Coincidentally, a friend mentioned eating there just a few days ago, which precipitated a wave of nostalgia. I used to go to the restaurant regularly during a brief marriage to a Cuban woman. At the time, it was about the only place in Atlanta you could get decent Cuban food.  Unfortunately, this fire follows the recent closing of Kool Korner, whose Cuban sandwich many regarded as the city's best.
