What Does Our Paladar Mean?!?

Our Paladar is an "ode to Chef Nick’s Cuban family."

On their website, they explain: "A Paladar refers to the chef-run restaurants that first came about in Cuba in the early 1990s. They operated primarily out of family homes and meals would change based on market availability."

Chef Nick started his business the same way by hosting people at his house. His meals became very popular so the pop-ups were moved to Thai Pop and held every Sunday evening in downtown Rochester.

Now, a permanent location will open with regular business hours.
