Restaurateur extraordinaire Fernando Mateo has done it again.
Just in time for Memorial Day Weekend, Zona De Cuba (558 Grand Concourse) is now open for business and it is a game changer. This is your new go to spot, trust us on this one folks. The Bronx will never be the same again.
Located on the rooftop of the former Bronx General Post Office building, Zona De Cuba is quite simply magnificent. From the moment you exit the elevator, you know that this place is something special. It is elegant, expansive and downright swank. Imagine La Marina but on a rooftop.
The outstanding Cuban fare is elevated but still retains its authenticity. The décor is lush and sophisticated. The nods to Latinidad are understated but powerful. In short, this is the best spot in the greater Uptown area and it just opened up. Check it out ASAP and tell them the Uptown Collective sent you.

This is really great, best of luck to them.
Unlike at La Marina, it’s not illegal to have late-night music on the roof of the old Bronx Post Office. It’s not illegal to have dancing, or valet parking, or bottle service there either. That was always the fatal flaw for La Marina in that no matter how successful it was, or how much its patrons liked it, at the end of the day it was still an unapproved nightclub on public parkland that was breaking all kinds of fundamental rules and regulations. Hopefully Zona de Cuba will do better in its purpose-built space on private property.
