Openings: Tina's Cuban Cuisine on 14th Street

Tina's Cuban Cuisine is set to open today (Jan. 17!) at 238 E. 14th St. between Second Avenue and Third Avenue. (See the Insta embed below if you're interested in some opening specials.)

As we previously mentioned, this is the fourth NYC location for the quick-serve restaurant offering — as the name suggests! — authentic Cuban cuisine. 

The arrival of Tina's marks the end of two consecutive bagel shops at the address.

Bagel Market opened last February before the gate stayed down three months later. In an Instagram message, the owners of the chainlet said there was a leak from the unit above the kitchen, "and it destroyed our oven." They were looking to reopen here.

The previous tenant didn't have much better luck here. The Bagel Boss chainlet opened a location in July 2021, and they closed several months later in October 2021 for, per management, "gas and electric problems" in the building. Bagel Boss never reopened here.
