The Cuban Gypsy Pantry is the latest local food truck making the transition from mobile eatery to brick-and-mortar restaurant. Chef Will Vivas told Holy City Sinner that he expects to open a permanent location at 141 Calhoun Street by mid-July. Avila, another food truck-turned-restaurant, was previously at that address.
Vivas said he and his team will continue to operate both the truck and restaurant for the foreseeable future. The truck will maintain the same menu, but additional food options will be available at the restaurant.
According to Vivas, the downtown location will feature more traditional entrees and a "little more upscale" food options for dinner. They will also serve beer and wine.
