Marinas Cafe, a new restaurant in Chicago that offers family-made Puerto Rican food, is making its way to Uptown, located at 4554 N Magnolia Ave.
Located on the northside of Chicago in the Avondale neighborhood, Owner Eric Roldan will serve modern Puerto Rican food and new Latin fusion flavors. The new restaurant will move into the former home of Line Video and is expected to open in late Summer 2022, likely in September. Chef Roldan loved cooking with his grandmother’s recipes from a young age and wanted to honor his mother following her passing by naming the new cafe after her. The new cafe will have an outdoor patio and is currently offering catering at the moment.
When the new restaurant opens, guests can expect rice dishes with meat options, such as chicken wings, gfuava BBQ, Aji, bistec encebollado, fried chicken, and more. There will also be a handful of salads, sandwiches, and desserts, including flan and tembleque. The restaurant is currently available for catering and through a few delivery apps. The space will soon transform from a virtual kitchen into a beautiful Puerto Rican restaurant.
“Since indoor dining is a challenge right now they wanted to make it fast, easy, and enjoyable to all that want to order,” according to the company’s website. “Eric can’t wait until July 2022 when he will turn the delivery app concept into a modern Puerto Rican cuisine [restaurant], which will be known as Marinas Cafe and Bar with that one-of-a-kind only Mojito Bar.”
