The rumors are true. Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine, a restaurant located at 1134 19th St. NW, will close by March 25, said the restaurant’s owner.
“It is with regret that we have to close on March 25,” Sophie’s Cuban Cuisine owner Marguerite Lambert told us this afternoon. “We are proud of our food and . . . have loyal customers. They have become family.”
The restaurant serves Cuban sandwiches, soups and entrees and was a known lunch spot for people who worked downtown.
The eatery opened in 2013 and is a franchise of a company based in New York City.
