Founded by Puerto Rican Pedro Rodríguez and former Chilean journalist Julio Robledo, Grand Cata will sell food and drinks and hold classes, seminars and wine tasting sessions.
According to the store’s website:
Our concept was founded in Washington, D.C. in 2011. We spent time building our expertise in order to craft a unique experience that could bring the best of Latin America to where we live now. We proudly represent the history and vibrant culture of the Caribbean, Central America and South America, all integrated in a cultural retail space in the heart of the nation’s capital.
