Son Cubano, Chef Burke, Alex, Carmine

Been a while since you’ve been to Son Cubano in West New York?

If ever there was a time for a revisit ⁠— this is it. Acclaimed chef David Burke has been named culinary director of the modern Cuban restaurant.

Burke, a resident of Fort Lee, already helms the kitchens at Ventanas in Fort Lee, Nauti Bar in Sea Bright, Drifthouse in Sea Bright and David Burke at Orange Lawn, part of South Orange Tennis Club.

Son Cubano opened for outdoor dining with the rest of the state’s restaurants on June 15.

“We’re slowly implementing changes,” said Burke.

Alexander Duran owns both Son Cubano and Ventanas, the latter which he’s collaborated on with Burke since it opened in May of 2019. This year, Son Cubano celebrates 10 years of serving guests modern Cuban food with a backdrop of the New York City skyline. The restaurant features two dining rooms, two bars, a lounge area, an outdoor patio and entertainment nearly every night.
