There’s a new spot for fans of mofongo and Cuban sandwiches to get their fix.
Chef Hector Santiago has opened the second location of his popular Latino sandwich shop El Super Pan at The Battery at SunTrust Park. It joins the original Ponce City Market eatery, which opened in 2015.
The new restaurant will be open in the mixed-use development for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily, offering sandwiches, snacks and sides and mofongos from the menu at Ponce City Market along with new dishes.
The “El Menu del Dia,” a changing menu of Caribbean staples from chef Luis Guevara curated by Santiago includes dishes such as Ropa Vieja, Sour Orange Roasted Chicken and Carne Frita. During dinner, the “Churrasco Grill” will serve up grilled meats such as Churrascos, Gallinitas, Picaya, Lomo al Ajo and Duck Breast, as well as local vegetables.
Breakfast, which wiill be served from 9-11 a.m., will feature savory and sweet pastelillos, pies, cakes and breads as well as Latino-inspired breakfast dishes such as Tortilla Espanola and huevos en cocotte. A Caribbean-style coffee shop will serve Cuban cafecitos and coladas, Puerto Rican cafe con leche and coffee sourced from farms in Puerto Rico.
Desserts offerings will include El Super Pan staples such as Chipotle-Chocolate Chip Cookies and Bacon-Guava Shortbread Cookies, alongside new dishes such as Coconut Strawberry Cake and Mango Pie made by pastry chef Abigail Quinn.
The cocktail program will feature Latin American spirits including Rums, Mezcal, Pisco and Cachaca; drinks including Pina Coladas, Cuba Libres, Mojitos and Chichaitos; rotating specialty cocktails; Latin beers including Modelo and Imperial and some local beers; and bottled and keg wines from Argentina, Chile and Spain.
The 4,200-square-foot restaurant offers dine-in or carry out, with 90 seats at tables, a bar and an enclosed inner patio that will accommodate 40+ additional customers. A bar on the patio’s exterior serves frozen margaritas and other cocktails, and El Salon Tropical, a private dining room with seating for 40, has its own bar and will double as a space for a DJ.
This is the latest expansion for Santiago, who recently announced that he’ll be opening El Burro Pollo Burrito Kitchen in the Coda at Tech Square development.
